I think I would focused more in high school and college. I got good grades but I think if I had tried harder I would have gotten great grades. I still love where I have ended up in my career but as they hindsight is 20/20.
when my father pulled me out of high school in 1946 with absolutely no diplomas to show for, I should have listened to the teachers and principal who tried to get me emancipated. That meant going to court and break with my family so with not a penny to my name how could I do it? I was not even a woman and WW2 was just ending. Look to your future young people ...make wise decisions! good luck. geny h
