About Me

An Essay By Lilly Putt // 4/18/2012

I am 100% Scottish, and am living in America. I have three brothers and two sisters. We left for America when I was around ten years old and I have gone on several trips with my family to Scotland. I definitely have a Scottish accent, nobody in America can take that from me :D
I was born in Larkhall, Scotland on April 20, 1992, a year after my brother Wallace. I am the second oldest in the family. My name is Karen. I have red hair---as do all my siblings :D Two years later, a little sister was born, her name was Aileana. The very next year my mother gave birth again, but this time, the baby died. So, two years later, my mother gave birth to triplets, Stuart(1st), Kerk(2nd) and Shayla. We named Stuart after his grandfather (Stuart is a Scottish name). Kerk, because we are Christians and it's a nice name :D And Shayla because it is Gaelic :D
Anyways, when I was five, we moved to Dundee, Scotland and lived there until I was ten. Then we moved to America because father said that America was a better Country as far as politics and Christianity. So we moved here and on the 20th, I'm turning twenty years old! :) My brother Wallace is twenty one, and my sister Aileana is going to turn eighteen in May. :) THEN, the triplets JUST turned fifteen years old! :D So, yeah :)
We would have ten people in the family if the baby hadn't died :( We have nine in the family. Three girls, three boys, mummy and father :)
What I like to do:
Go to Church
Go to Nursing homes
Sing (a little)

I work at a Nursing Home as a nursing assistant and I'm taking Nursing in college :O
