Introductory Profile: About Brajesh Singh

My dad‘s name is Brajesh Singh. He was born in Nepal, 1970, and grew up there. He lived in a village, and was very poor, so I decided to interview him on the subject of poverty. His father was a farmer, and his mom would take care of him and help his father sometimes. He lived in Nepal till he was 18, and then his aunt flew him over to America to get an education.He was determined to work hard and get ahead in life.When he was not studying or in college, he was working at Chick-fil-a and not speaking a word of English. Working there forced him to learn English, and he got a lot better at it. He was introduced to modern day inventions like cars, planes, and THE INTERNET. It was great time for him. He learned how to drive, got a degree, became an engineer, and a lot of other good stuff. So now he likes to lecture us on how hard life was for him when he was a child, and how the American system is so confusing but also easy compared to the Nepali system which was very straightforward and taxing, and included physical punishment.

I’ve known my dad forever because he is my dad. Why wouldn’t you? He is generally a nice guy, but sometimes he gets mad for some really dumb reasons, and then does something completely unnecessary, like changing the password on the computer. He also *favors my sister over me*, which is disappointing. He works most of the day, and makes a lot of money. He really likes fishing, and watches fishing videos on how to’s for this or that. Almost every vacation he gets, he spends fishing. He also loves passing the time by watching CNN. Day in and day out, you hear CNN reporters blathering on about Trump and Russians. He also loves to take photos. Every holiday we celebrate, he has his camera ready. All you hear is his shutter going rapid fire taking photos. And my cousin, sister, and I stand still for countless photos which are used to embarrass us later. My dad’s a pretty nice guy in general.
