Rummaging through the attic with the hope of finding old toys I came across three large boxes filled with photo albums I opened the first album to find it to be baby pictures of my older brother Page after page I flipped through each album anxious to find pictures of myself I became increasingly disappointed as I found pictures of me to be rare I went to my room to retrieve a much smaller album I had just bought at the store and made the goal of simply filling that one so that amongst these piles of albums I could call just one of them mine Optimistic once again I began on my quest I turned over each page slowly being sure not to miss any as each side displayed six pictures As I came to the end of the last album my heart sank I had not been able to fill even half of my small one-picture-per-side album Being a second born child in a traditional Chinese family and a girl for that matter I was naturally less favored than my older sibling a boy I never failed to understand this concept as I was growing up and I was not surprised to find less pictures of me than of him My surprise was towards the extremity of the situation nearly twenty large albums in comparison to not quite half of one small I realized then the reason for my continuous struggle to win my parents attention their approval My constant crying my annoying ranting all of which were for the sake of shifting their attention towards me My whining only gained their irritation however and I became determined to prove my worth otherwise Though my father often took little notice to me I would follow him around watching and observing his every move I had long since given up on my mother On the day when I received my first grammar school report
