I constantly knew that I wanted to grow up and do something with my hands.
I thought I would work as a carpenter or a contractor, but I found a superb option that led myself and others in a odd direction.
When I was a senior in school, I went to a task honorableat the school. There were a couple of representatives from a technical school in the same city. The technical school had a lot of programs and I qualified for special grants and scholarships because I was a woman. I found out that they had a couple of odd programs that I could attend for free if I could pass that aptitude test. I came lake home the same day and I told my Dad that I was thinking about applying or the heating & air conditioning service class. My Dad was entirely supportive and she thought it was a superb idea. She was happy that I could attend the technical school and learn about heating & air conditioning service entirely for free. When my dad came lake home from work later that day, I excitedly shared the same news. My dad was less than enthusiastic, she entirely didn’t appreciate the plan of myself and others working in a male-dominated industry. I tried to tell my dad that this is the twenty-first century and that is an outdated way of thinking, even though she was exasperated about my option for a long time. It took weeks and weeks before my dad came around to the plan of myself and others working in this competitive and male dominated industry.
