Mom loved stitching the most craziest designs. Once she stitched a picture of a zebra with all it's stripes coming off- on my only white Punjabi. "Isn't that pretty?" "What's wrong with the Zebra?" "It symbolizes how you keep dropping things- if you were a zebra you would probably drop your stripes.2 "Haha, that's interesting."

I Can't Be Controlled

"Hello besties I am Laila and I am from India. Please like and subscribe to sta." I was born into a family of accountants, and when I was just 2 years old dad gave me my first calculator. "This is a calculator Laila, if you want to be a great accountant one day you need to start now." Of course I had no idea what he was talking about- I was just two. Right after he left the room I threw the calculator like a flying saucer. And when I was nine, I finally realized what I wanted to be after watching a space channel on Youtube. "Mom, dad I know what I want to be when I grow up, I want to be an astronaut!" "Laila have you been watching nonsense again on your mother's phone?" "Not Nonsense dad, Youtube." "Enough! From now on you will watch educational programs with us." I wanted to talk back, but back chatting in my family meant you are grounded for life. I sat down and watched their boring accounting channel, and then all of a sudden, my eyes started burning and everything became blurry. "Mom, my eyes are burning." "Stop being dramatic, Laila and watch." Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

No One Knows I Live A Fake Life

I had just finished my kpop performance in front of thousands of screaming fans. When I returned to my trailer, I found a strange wedding cake waiting for me. What was that doing here?! Suddenly a guy burst out and rushed towards me! "Marry me Lisa!" "I don't even know you!" I flipped him over and pinned him down. Piece of cake for me. Pun intended. I was also a Taekwondo champion. Eventually security rushed in followed by my parents. "Lisa! Are your vocal chords okay?! Did he damage them?!" "Moph! Ga offmble. My chords are fine! So's the rest of me if you're wondering." "How long did it take you to bring him down? Better not be longer than 5 seconds. Otherwise I'll have to train you even harder. Taekwondo is all about speed, you know." I rolled my eyes at my parents. They could be so unbelievable sometimes. Hi, my name's Lisa and I'm from South Korea. You'd think being a kpop star and Taekwondo champion at the same time would be a dream. But for me, it was a literal nightmare. Because of my parents, I had to juggle these completely different lives and it was exhausting. One time I even had to do a Vogue interview in the middle of a fight! For many years I managed to scrape by with juggling these two lives, but when I turned sixteen, things reached their boiling point. Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

I Didn't Know My Real Parents Are Poor

Hi! I am Amehia. I 've always felt like the luckiest girl in the world, I had the best parents who were both doctors, in school I was a top achiever, and I did what I loved best basketball, I was the star in my team. But apart from all the greatness I had in life, there was one flaw-I was born with a with a condition called hyponychia. Meaning..I didn't have nails in all my fingers. As a child, I thought it was cool because my parents said so, but soon noticed that other kids treated me funny because of it. "Hey! What happened to your hand!?" "It's always been that way. Super cool right?" All of them ran away like I had a disease! When I figured out that my hand actually freaked other kids out, I refused to leave the house. "Why can't you just heal my hand so I can be like other kids!? Everyone treats me like an alien." "It's not something we can reverse dear. It's your own perfect flaw." When my parents saw that I wasn't ready to reason with them, they bought me a pack of fancy gloves to wear to school. "Your hands are awesome, but if this makes you more comfortable... " "It does! Thanks!" For me, as long as no one saw my hands, my life was perfect. Then...the new neighbors arrived. Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

I Can Solve Any Crime

Hi, I'm Anastasia and I was born to the most loving parents ever. Mum was a lawyer and we'd always play games where she pretended I was her lawyer and she was my client. I find you guilty of drinking my cereal! I sentence you to 100 years in prison "Oh please have pity on me, judge." "But then, she suddenly left me and Dad when I was 5; and we never heard from her again." I had to grow up with a Dad who was obsessed with computers and electronics. Dad could fix just about anything! "Where does this go?" "Right here, Daddy!" He taught me everything I knew about electronics; in no time, I started to mess with them like they were nothing. In fact, I wanted to be an engineer just like him. But then one day, while we were busy with a robot project, we suddenly heard a loud machine noise coming from outside. When we ran out to check what it was, we were surprised to find two bulldozers staring at us. "Sir, this property belongs to Kent Inc. We are under instructions to demolish it." "What? Tell Mr. Kent he can kick rocks" "Sir, please move out of the way. You have 5 seconds and we wont ask again." Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

The School Queen Is Obsessed With Me

Hi everyone, I'm Sophia from USA. When I was little- I'd always wanted to be like my parents; high achieving scientists. But as I grew, I realized I could never because I sucked at everything. Driving lessons. Sports School "Another F, Sophia." So, I gave up. My parents were often disappointed but, they always tried to be understanding. "You'll do much better if you just put in the effort" I wish it was that easy but being used to failure just had a way of making me feel insecure about myself and everything. In school, I was even known as the popular loser. "Hey loser, disappear. We need this spot." "Is your name written on it?" That was Heather, the smartest girl in my class and her dumb super-rich boyfriend, Cameron. I'd never understood what she saw in him, he was way below her standards. He gave me a mean stare and I just left the table for them. "Whatever. I was done eating anyways." After school that day I headed home and on the way, spotted a new antique store that I'd never seen before and walked in to look around. Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

Mom Literally Only Cares About Money

Woow that was close. Ever since I was little, Dad and I have always been like two peas in a pod. We lived by the sea and swam together with the sea animals everyday, BUT my Mom AKA Miss Perfect was never happy about anything- she loved complaining. "I'm gonna call you Inky!" "Mom! Meet my pet, Inky. Dad and I saved it from a shark!" "What? Sea animals are not pets. They're dangerous! Your father knows better, we work with them everyday." "You're too paranoid. She loves the octopus and it's harmless, she can keep it." My parents worked together as marine scientists at a multi billion government research lab named Vought's lab, but they never saw eye to eye on things especially with the sea animals they worked with and she always liked picking a fight with dad about money. Once dad took us out to a fancy restaurant for my 15th birthday, mom looked at the bill and threw such a tantrum, embarrassing both me and dad. "Why would you bring us to a place that would cost us an arm and a leg." "Calm down darling, we can afford it, and plus it's for our baby girl." "Well, our lifestyle is getting a little too expensive and one of us has to do something to make sure we don't lose everything." I didn't know what mom was talking about, but all I knew is that she just ruined my birthday. And then soon after the next worse thing in my life happened. Hosted on Acast.

My Life In A Family Of Thieves

Hi. I'm Collins, prince of a faraway kingdom called Setia and this is my story of the most bizarre way I found true love. I was born to the two worst parents ever. Dad and Mum were the King and Queen of Setia, and they were the worst the town had ever seen. They shamelessly stole and ate the town's money, and also believed that we were above everyone because we were royals. My brother, Gerald who was two years older than me was exactly like them, ruthless, selfish and a big, empty-headed hunk who was only interested in growing his intimidating biceps and nothing else. "Yes! Sniff all that glory, insurgent!" I came out different though. Every time I got a chance, I helped people even if Mum and Dad didn't like that very much. Once when I was 10, I heard this girl crying by the castle gates. "Someone, anybody. I need help. My mum needs medication and we don't have any money." My brother, Gerald walked up to her and pushed her away from the gates and then he was so rude! "Get away from the castle, peasant. There are doctors all over the village. Go ask them for medication. This isn't a hospital." "I don't have any money for that. The King and Queen took our farmlands away. Please help me." "Get lost!" Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

My Perfect Hair Got Me Everything Until...

Hi, I'm Freda from New York and this is my story. I've always been a lucky, beautiful child; born to parents who adored me. Dad worked as a scientist for a large corporation, and Mum was a small fashion designer. Our lives were sailing smoothly until Dad's company was robbed by a notorious criminal family and he was forced to testify against them in court. Because of his brave testimony, the government awarded him a huge sum of money which were mostly proceeds from the crime. But at a very dire cost, his testimony landed our lives in danger and we had to move from one city to another each year. It caused a rift between my parents. "I'm leaving with our child if you move to one more city." "For God's sake, this is the last city. You're safe here. Be grateful." True to his word, that was the last city we moved to. After eight years of living there, my parents found their footing in the city and grew popularly wealthy with all the money they made from the court case; and I launched a modeling career that propelled me to stardom because of their influence. "FREDA! FREDA!" Everyone loved me. But the thing they loved the most was my hair. I had the most perfect red hair. it was long, curly and soft like silk. But one day, that changed. It all happened the night Dad had been working on a serious project in his lab when I walked in. Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

Hello, I'm Himari and I am from Australia, please like and subscribe to STA. Growing up, I was a fun, ambitious and brave little girl and everyone loved me. But not everyone loved MARCUS, a boy my age at school. He was always so nervous around kids and because of this they took advantage of him.

"Marcus, if you keep running these boys will always push you around. Come on we're back for your plane." "But it's just a piece of paper. I I don't need it." I ignored his fears, took his hand and marched back to the boys. "You boys have something of his and you will give it back right now." "Hahaha, what are you going to do shorty?" I showed him alright that dynamite comes in small packages, and after they gave Marcus his plane, he softly asked me something. "Can we friends, and can you teach me how to be brave like you?" "Say that again, louder please?" We became the best of friends afterwards and as we grew up the more confident he became and the more fond I grew of him. Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

Mom Won't Allow Anyone Near Me

Hi I'm Jewel, Thank you for tuning into STA. Ever since I was a little girl I loved painting. My favorite artist was Georgia O'Keeffe. Once I felt so inspired by her works that I started painting the walls of my room, and then my parents walked in. "Argh!!! Is that fire!?" "Did someone say fire-- oh." "It's not fire mom. It's just paint." "See?" "This is a mess! When will you stop playing around with paint!" "Oh Jewel, we have told you to invest your time better by reading to become a lawyer." "Well I don't want to be a lawyer, I am going to be an artist!" My parents were big time politicians who gave me almost everything I asked for, but life with them wasn't easy. Thanks to their career, they were always obsessing over what the media and people would say about them that they wouldn't let me live a normal life! I wasn't even allowed to wear the same outfit twice. "Oh honey, didn't I just buy you a dashing Gucci gown for this party?" Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

I Can't Be Seen By Anyone

Hi, I'm Colton, your friendly neighborhood geek, and years ago, I did what every geek dreams of; I married the prettiest girl in the world. I know you want to know how I pulled that off. Well it all happened on one afternoon... As I put the ring pop on her finger, I watched Haley’s face brighten up. I loved her smile so much I could watch her all day. I put a ring pop on my finger as well and smiled. "We’re married now!" Haley laughed and all I could do was stare. Even though I was just 7 years old, I had a huge crush on her and knew I'd marry her for real one day. We happily licked our ring pops but just then, Haley stopped smiling and hid her hand behind her back. Suddenly, someone pinched my ear and dragged me to my house. "What do you think you're doing with my daughter? " Haley’s mom really didn't like me, even though we were neighbors. She always called me a poor boy, just because they drove a better car than my family. "Haley, how many times must I tell you not to play with this poor boy?" "Mom, leave him alone!" "Mom! Dad!"

My Obsessive Mom Controls My Life

Hi! I am Sasha! I grew up with a single father and he loved me too bits- but sometimes he was a bit over the top about his love for sports- he was my biggest fan. "Go Bolt! Go! That’s my girl! Watch out world, the next Usain Bolt is coming!" Dad was a figure skater during his teen years. My mom left us when we were two without any reason and ever since he was my everything. We were so close that despite his family's effort to make him remarry, he insisted he was fine and didn't need any female to help raise me. "If her real mom couldn't take care of her, what woman can?" Though he did his best, one day it dawned on him that he had no idea how to raise a little girl. One time we were invited to a wedding and Dad bought matching male suits for us to twin in! "Look Sasha! We are going to twin in this!" "But dad! It makes me look like a boy!" "Who cares!? You look good to me!" At his insistence, I wore the suit that way to the wedding and I was the laughing stock of the party. Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

Hi I'm Ada from Nigeria. Ever since I was a little girl I loved working on cars with grandpa. "Want to give this one a try?" "Sure!" "Grandpa! This is so cool! I want to build cars one day and" "Build cars! eww, that's not a girl's job." That was my Aunt Chi, I was raised by her alongside her own daughter June after I lost my parents. "If that is what she wants to be, then you have no right to stop her. The sky is her starting point."

Everyone Treats Me Like I'm Fragile

"I made it! I made it! Woohoo! Boo to you Mr Davil!" Hi, I'm Phoenix. Ever since I was a little girl I admired my dad because he worked at the US Space force. Whenever he had time, we would look up at stars using his telescope "Look that's Mars right there. Did you know I went to Mars once and saw a real life alien? It had green skin and really long fingers!" "Wooow! I want to go to Mars too!" "You will my love. You will go even beyond that." Dad was my childhood inspiration, but mom, who was a housewife, always scolded dad when he told me alien stories. "You need to stop talking all that garbage to her about aliens, kids will laugh at her in school" Sadly, dad kept harping about aliens even at his workplace, and without proof to backup his claims, dad was assumed crazy and fired. If only they knew how wrong they were. Things went sour between my parents after that. They wouldn't even talk to each other directly anymore even if they were in the same room. "Phoenix, can you ask your mom why there's no food for me?" "Mom why is there no food for dad?" Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

I Was Stolen From My Birth Mom

Hi, My name is Yolanda and I'm from Australia. I was born with a beautiful flame-like birthmark on my face- mom told me that God took more time to create me because I was that special- but what confused me was that she always made me cover up my birthmark with make-up. It's just track practice, mom. Is this really necessary? "Yes honey, it's to protect you from people who stare too much." I went along with what mom said, and even though I aways covered up my birthmark- she made me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world. I loved her to bits, and we had a very strong bond but sometimes, seeing the kids in school with their fathers made me jealous and curious about mine. "Mom, why don't I have a Dad?" "Uh, he left us years ago. " "Why?" "It doesn't matter. You have me now." Mom avoided the topic of my father like the plague and one day I found out why in the form of A letter showing that I was adopted. "You weren't supposed to see that." Hosted on Acast.

Hi I'm Annie and I'm from New York. "Wohooo! And I win once again." "That's so unfair, you always cheat. " "Haha, don't be a cry baby." "Annie! Do you always have to behave like a barbarian? Michael could have injured himself -badly." "It was an accident." "I'm fine. We were just playing." "Oh I know how wild Annie becomes. She just doesn't know when to stop."

"Anni, Annie, Annie." My best friend was a boy. Michael and I were like peanut butter and jelly and sometimes we even dressed like each other, which drove my mom up the wall. Hosted on Acast.

A Necklace Changed My Life Forever

Hi Everyone, I'm Bella from Portugal. This hotel has always been my playground since mom worked here as one of the maids, but whenever she caught me watching the guests she would pull me by my ear. "Bella, how many times must I tell you that the guests do not like spies." "But, mom what else do you expect me to do while you are cleaning." "Why is your daughter here again. I thought I told you that this is a place of work and important people." "I'm important too, Miss. I'm going to be a rich person one day, owning my own designer label." "Well, in this place you are trouble. Please make other arrangements for your daughter next time." Mom's manager was a big meanie! She was horrible to everyone. And despite her demands, mom had no choice, but to have me at work after school hours. We couldn't afford a nanny or after care. I enjoyed being at the hotel, since I loved watching all the fancy rich people that came from all over the world. Call me weird, but I enjoyed stalking the rich people and just watching how they sipped their tea, dressed in their fancy gowns, powdered their faces and how they enjoyed the best of life at the massage spa. I had this dream of being a brand like Gucci or Louis Vuitton. I believed I was a good stylist, but mom kept telling me to focus on my books and to stop dreaming. Hosted on Acast.
