Her written words inspired my own.



Backstory

My Catholic grade school principal, Sister Virginette, sent me a personal letter. In it, she told this gawky 7th grader not to worry about being talented. She reminded me that I didn't need to be the top-of-the-class genius my best friend was. She also told me that not having enough money for education should not hold me back. Sister Virginette told me that my soul was full of "stick-to-itiveness"; that my persistence and determination were my power. She inspires me daily, to finish all things, using every bit of my very best efforts to be successful. Her written words inspired my own to become a freelance success as opposed to a nun with stillettos under her habit.
