    you Who are you? Who am I? This question has often been asked during the growth of everyone. When we were young, studying in the kindergarten, we would probably answer the teacher with your name. But at the moment, I will think deeper than just the name given by my parent. We all have a different answer for a different age of ourselves, maybe when I become older I will change my answer again.
