I got my first job at a Call Center when I was 17 to pay for college. Started as a AT&T representative, speaking with all sorts if customers (generally angry and frustrated).
That never stopped me. I worked my way up, managed to get a degree. After finishing my career i got a scholarship for my masters, moved to another city with a roommate. It was difficult to find a job that i really like, but i got there. Now i only need enough discipline to keep up with my writing.
I’m typing this because your story made sense to me right from the beginning, and I will be sharing with my sister for sure, she’s 19. Talia’s letter was full of complaints and no action. Yours is full of inspiration.
Thanks for sharing.
