They said she couldn’t.
She was the first in her family to try.
They offered her zero support & showed her she couldn’t.
At university, they treated her contemptuously because of her accent, her manner & because to them she reeked of poverty, neglect & desperation. To them, she didn’t belong.
They thought she couldn’t.
But she did. She graduated almost without their help.
She became the first graduate in her family. She wanted to tell them all ‘fuck you’.
But now, she knew what to do in order to manage her thoughts.
That’s the power of education…❁
