Life has not always been easy, but I managed to survive. And with that, I am happy.

My name is Iny M. Montallana. I’m 17 years old. I don’t know what my name means but some people relate it to the Chinese words for “I love You” which is Wo Ai Ni. I have an older sister who just recently passed the Nursing Board exam. My Dad is an OFW working in America. My Mom, on the other hand, is a teacher and also a registered nurse. It may sound like the normal family of four, but we are nowhere near the word normal. I don’t mean it in a negative way. I just think normal would really be inappropriate to describe this family that I have. You may say unique, but that would be underrated. Maybe we’re just a contemporary family. Just a little between happy and dysfunctional.
