My skills and my intelligence I feel were minimized by the teachers and the school counselors, and I feel I was conditioned to not excel, and was told that I was not college material and that all you can be is a typist. So they conditioned you get a job, and function and provide that way. You know, at least give you a skill that you could get a job by. So I always had in my mind that I was stupid, that all I was capable of doing was typing, that I definitely was not college material. So when you`re told all those years that you cannot do something and shouldn`t even attempt it, you just feel powerless, and you said, "Well, okay," and you passively set out to be a typist, and that`s what I did for years. It was hard to fight the prejudices.
