Hi my name is Mr.chong
Hi my name is Jing-mel
It was 1949 when the civil war beginning. My mom had to leave everything in China to come to the US for a better future. She had all of her hopes in me become someone big in the world
SUCH UGLY GIRL!!
Mom: " Jing-mel, you can be the new Shirley Temple and I will take you to get a haircut to look like Shirley Temple." Jing-mel: "But now I look like Peter Pan." Every night my mom tests me on little quizzes. Then She saw a Chinese girl play the piano on the T.V so she told me that I could do the same thing.
Jing-mel: ''My mom job was to clean houses she worked for a guy name Mr.Chong and he knew to play the piano." Mom:" Jing-mel, I will clean Chong's house and in return he's going to show how to play the piano.'' But Mr.Chong had a problem he was deaf

Jing-mel: ''I began to cry'' such an UGLY GIRL ! I scream to the mirror than I saw in the mirror a face that I have never seen before. The girl in the mirror staring back at me with angry, strong face.
Jing-mel: It have been one year that I have been taking piano lesson. My mom thinks that it's time for me to show off my talent so my parents signed me up for a talent show. When I got up to performance I did a lot of mistakes. Mr.Chong: "Bravo!! You did it!!!" My parent were not proud of me
30 years later My mom had past away and I haven't talked to her in 30 year. I went to the apartment where I used to live with my parents to help my dad organize my mom's stuff. But when I walked in the apartment I saw the piano that I played in the concert and as I started to to play I realized that there are two components when it comes to making music that makes a beautiful melody.
