    Hi, everyone. My name is Jonathan. You can call me Jon or John for short. I was named after my father who felt his birth name John wasn't classy enough and changed it to Jonathan. My mother is a black woman by the name of Myra. She is a very beautiful woman who is a lot like my father. My dad has white skin who is of Cuban, Mexican, Russian, Italian, and Greek ancestry. Both of my parents struggled to become successful in business. It might sound like culture shock, but I just see myself as everyone else in the world. I'm an individual who needs to succeed to survive in life. My parents instructed me that my choices affected me compared to my race and social status. They couldn't be more correct. I do my best to live positively. Using my ambition to succeed where other fail. Anything else you're welcome to ask. Hope everyone is in good health.
