When I was in high school, I had teachers who told me I was an awful writer and that I could not write no matter how hard I tried. I also had a guidance counselor who asked me which colleges I was going to apply to, and I told her my plan was to go to this particular university and she told me to reconsider.   Actually, her words were “don’t go there” because I wasn’t “good enough.”

Three years later, I go to that particular university, I work as a writing tutor, and I am a published author and have readers from all around the world.

So, who got it wrong?

Thank you all for reading!!!
