Lived Experience: Nelson Choi


Read Nelson's Story

My name is Nelson and I am 3. I don’t like it when my mommy goes away and leaves me at my school. Sometimes she has to go away and it makes me so sad and scared. But I don’t like to cry.

Before we moved to the new house, when I would cry, my daddy would get mad at me and yell at me. Big boys don’t cry.

I’m glad I have a big sister. She’s a good sister. Sometimes when I’m sad she brings me into her room and makes me feel better with her stuffed animals. She puts on a puppet show for me. I like puppet shows.
