My name comes from
the beginning of the Bible.
My name comes from my Mom who named me
because she loves the way it sounds like an angel’s whisper.
My middle name Natasha comes from my Dad,
who plays soccer, his name is Nato and they added –asha to the end.
My name is special
to my family.
My name is hard for people
My name is so long people try
to make it shorter.
My name isn’t always going to be perfect,
but it’s my name. No one can judge it.
