I believe that you only get one chance to make a good first impression, and that people are capable of more than is expected of them. As an example, many drivers in the United States believe that they cannot learn how to drive a standard transmission car, and yet throughout the rest of the world such cars are the norm and automatic transmissions the rarity. Do I believe that entire populations of the world are smarter or more intelligent than Americans? No, I do not. I believe what is holding people back from realizing their full potential is their own limited and fearful expectations.
I am an attorney who has had the privilege of being involved in the rearing of many of my nieces. I have taught Head Start to young children. I enjoy animals and have trained and shown dogs and horses. I was a Docent at our local zoo and educated the public about many species of animals. I spent my teen-age years growing up in Germany and attending school in England. Thus, I was exposed to various cultures at a young age.
