Education is essential

As a young girl, I had never dreamed of going to college. No one in my family had graduated from college.

My dream was to become a fashion model. I was tall enough. Slim enough. Even cute enough to become a model. Those advertisements at the back of family magazines promoting modeling schools were my inspiration. The pictures were enticing and promised a potential career as a model to this naïve young girl.
