Teva Hollinger Autobiography
By Teva Hollinger
When the teacher would call my name there would always be a stutter and they always say it wrong. There always that one teacher in a million years that would pronounce it perfectly. Kids would laugh when the teacher would say it wrong, not to make fun of me, but they were laughing at the teacher for saying it wrong. People would tell me that they liked the name Teva or say that there are shoes named after me, but the real story begins with a man with his boat. My parents were in Tahiti when they passed a man that told them that he could bring them out on his boat and see the island. On the boat my parents saw things that they have never thought of ever seeing. He brought them to all the best places that only the natives would know off. They saw animals, hidden caves, and waterfall. His name was Teva, he lived in the island with his son and wife. He would go out on his boat to fish and once in a while he would go out for a joyride. He knew the island inside and out, all the best places and the worst. He knew hidden reefs, caves, waterfalls, and lagoons. Teva meant powerful and nice inTahitief. There was a king named Teva in Tahiti that ruled for many years and the people liked him. I later learned that in Hebrew Teva means nature or outside wildlife. My mom told my dad that there firstborn son would be named Teva Hollinger no matter what. I love my name, I wouldn't know what name I would give myself if i could choose any other name in the world .When someone say Teva i think of the color blue and green, i think of nature and a relaxing spot in the world. The smell that fits my name is a nature forest smell and the ocean or fresh water smell. My name would be smooth with a little texture but now a lot.Teva makes me feel happy and relaxed. I don't think any other name would fit a person like me with a different name.

My family has a large history in Switzerland with a large impact. Most of our valuables are in my mothers uncles house, but the rest is in s museum of our family and in the factory. When asking my mother what was the valuable object is, she told me that there is a oil painting of my great, great, great, great grandfather who founded the factory. This piece is so important because this is the only painting that the museum doesn't have and want. My family doesn't want to give it to them because of some story's he had in the family. The man in the painting created the factory of rubber and he left a mark in history in Switzerland for my family. The factory also created machines which was a big thing of technology back then. the factory would make sewing machines and engines to help people to get things done faster. There's a museum in Switzerland with painting and objects that my family gave them about them. The museum has many paintings of my family members and paintings of places. The main reason why my family kept this is that later generation of my family and other people to see and learn about us and how life was back then. The museum keeps asking if they can have the painting but my grandfather tells them that he will never give it. This piece tells a lot about other things my family has because the painting is beautiful and has a meaning of place. Many other objects have a meaning in my family and why we hold on to them. I have never visited this place we always say we will but never get to it. I learned how much my family is in the history of Switzerland that I never knew, and I think it’s funny how here in America my family really has no big part, but in another country my family is big.

Yin and Yang and Yang
In my mind, each colors has two meaning.
One good and one bad, just like Yin and Yang.
Red to me means anger and rage, but on the other hand, its means love and compassion.
Blue can be sorrow or sadness, but also calm and free like water flowing down a river.
Black triggers my emotion of darkness or that feeling of keeping a lie inside when you know the truth should come out, but also a serene and mysterious feeling because of the idea of a shadow lurking under the full moons light.
Some colors only have one emotional either good or bad.
Gold to me opens my mind to wealth and shine with no greedy feeling or anger.
But the color yellow and brown bring disgust and ugly to my mind because it reminds me of the public restrooms.
A thew colors bring back memories of places or people.
