Keep on Believing in Yourself
Because of my son's high scores on a test a college wrote us and suggested our twelve year old boy might be invited to study in a special advanced program for three weeks in the summer. I was very excited and immediately called his counselor.
She responded by telling me not to expect him to be invited. "Only very sophisticated children can leave home and study in a college far away from home. etc. etc. etc." I knew she was wrong but I just let her continue with her negative stance.
I knew my son and knew he could do it. Sure enough he scored high enough on another test that qualified him to attend the college. I never considered her opinion. Nice lady that she was, I had better information about my son in my possession than she would ever have.
And I believed in him and knew he would succeed. And he did.
So I suggest...if you know you can do something don't let anyone dissuade you. Good luck.
