Be careful who you listen to. Don’t let others set limits on you. Neighbors told my parents my brother and I would do well to work in one of the local factories. My parents didn’t believe them. My brother and I both have had successful academic careers. I recall a young Mexican-American woman who was a student in one of my classes. She said her counselor told her she should get a job because her future was working in fast food and getting pregnant. This woman didn’t listen to her counselor. She earned a master’s degree and was working on a doctorate. Listen to your heart, never to voices who put limits on you.
