There is a story behind that but it’s not long enough to warrant a story on Medium. Hahaha. It’s just that the government at the time was still processing my parents’ marriage certificate at the time I was born. They’re well known to have been super slow and it’s a very long paperwork process. Thus, I bear no last name. My birth certificate stated I’m the daughter of my mother only and then later on, at the back of it, in a small piece of paper, it says that I’m also the daughter of my father.

Thats the whole story. And to this day, I still experience what happened years and years ago!

Thank you for reading and for your thoughtful response, Jack! I know Jack is just one of your pen names but my dad’s name is Jack too!
