Win a Chance to Be the Next CoverGirl!

Hello Ellen! I'd like to my mother, Lina to be a Cover Girl! Even though I am 12 years old (almost 13), over the years of my life, I know that she definitely deserves to be a Cover Girl like you! Ever since she was born, she was expected to sell sodas on the streets and take care of her brother and sister. But when she hit the age of 12, she escaped on a boat to the United States to find a better future. Then, she met my dad, everything seemed so magical as if there was going to be a disney-type of happy ending. When I was 3, my dad turned into a drunkard, making my mom to rent a hotel room to make sure my dad wouldn't harm us in any way when he was drunk. But things couldn't last forever until I was 4, the nightmare came to life. My dad was running around; chasing my mom around the kitchen with a knife. All I could remember was that she told me to hide. Several minutes later, the police arrived and thank goodness my mom wasn't hurt. ( Now they are divorced. ) When I was 6 years old, we moved to Pennsylvania, we were living the life, living in a two story house and it was just wonderful until her business went down and we had to move back to California. Until I was about 10 1/2 years old, I had to leave my mom at California and go live with my aunt's house in Pennsylvania because we owed too much money and had gone bankrupt. I feel like I need to find a way to repay my mom for all she had done, and how lonely she had felt when I had left her. Now, we are living together, and still struggling in debt. Any moment now can just break into pieces but I know my mom wouldn't give up. Her inner and outer beauty just leaves me speechless, she had gone through a lot and I want the world to know that my mom is just an inspiring person and to stay strong when you are in tough times like these.
Her birthday was right before presidents' day, and I hope this could be her surprise birthday present!
