When DD announced her chioce of summer job, the whole family were into shock. You want to do what??!! - "An 18 year old girl selling kitchen xxxxx door to door?". Grandma even offered $1000 to change her mind.
Once I made sure the process has its security safe guards, I offered my 100% support to DD. It would be great to learn how to sell, how to communicate, how to deal when people slam their door on you.
After several days of training, she made the list of preparations and called several people yesterday. 4:30 PM she went off by herself into the real world. She made a sell on the very first appointment!!!!! That like totally surprised me and the whole family. Words failed me at that moment.
Whatever $$ she made is not going to make a difference in our financial situation. However, this experience should benefit her the whole life time.
It is not about 34 or 35 on ACT. It is not about 10 or 15 AP. It is not about 3.85 or 4.00 GPA. It is about a person who determines to do something with all his/her drives.
DD will attend a university this fall. However, I am 100% convinced that it does not really matter what school she attends, she is going to make a difference and significant contribution. I am, as always, very proud of having such a wonderful daughter!!!!!!!
