My Mother

My mother’s name is Maria Magdalena. She is 52 years old, and she has black hair and brown eyes the same as mine. Her first name, Maria, has a Catholic meaning. In my city, it is very common custom to use the names Maria for woman. My mother’s birthplace was Medan, a tropical city in North Sumatera that is close to Aceh province. Now my mother’s home is in Denpasar, and she is a teacher in a primary school.
