How I was inspired to learn the Truth!

Your DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is your genetic code. It doesn’t just make you; it makes different parts of you. For example, let’s just say that the majority of your blood is Ghana. That doesn’t make you Ghana but it makes you give into consideration that your ancestors were originated in that particular place. Now, there is something vexing about black people’s DNA that I know you don’t want to know but it’s the truth. I call it the black truth. Long ago, Europeans took black people away from where they originated from, Africa, which cut about half of the African population at the time.  Then black people didn’t get the proper education or rights they deserved so instead of making their own last names they were forced to use their slave owners’ names. You see the good thing about the black truth is that once you know the truth you can expect more from your DNA. So you are probably wondering, “What was so good to you about your DNA?”. Well this is where the journey begins.

I have been wanting to do Ancestry.com for a long time. I have been wanting to do it since I was 6 and currently I ‘m 9. It took me three years to convince my parents to buy me a kit (I really need to get my game up). Anyway, I didn’t just plain out want to do my DNA. I had encouragement. I had an inspiration, and this is how I got it. One day I was watching a commercial, which was unlike me, I don’t usually wash commercials, but this time this one seemed interesting. I was listening very intensely to what the lady and the man was saying{even though half of it I didn’t understand}. Two minutes later I saw a pie shaped figure with different countries and percentages on them. The last word I heard from that commercial was ancestry and that’s when my ideal.

Little bit moreMy mom and dad also gave me a lecture about how that can probably change my life to know my lineage and culture. They also showed  me old pictures of some of ancestors and that also got me pumped to know more about my DNA.
