A Minute With Me
By: Angelo Di Pasquale

I was born in New York on March 15, 1980. Both of my parents have immigrated to the US from different parts of the world. My father was born and raised in Italy while my mother was born and raised in Uruguay which is located in South America.

My grandparents on my father's side were both born in Italy. My grandmother took my dad and two others out of eight to come to America in the 70's. Some of my other aunts and uncles came over later in the 70's

My mother's father immigrated from Italy to Uruguay in the early 40's while my grandmother was born there. My grandmother's parents were both born in Spain and migrated to Uruguay in the 20's for prosperity reasons.

Some interesting facts about me:
I have an older sister and a younger brother
I like the New York Yankees
I have drawn for Disney (in a high school project that I won)
