My mom was supportive right away, but it took our dad some time

I consistently knew that I wanted to grow up and do something with our hands.

I thought I would work as a carpenter or a company, but I found a enjoyable chance that led me in a different direction.

When I was a senior in middle 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 different programs that I could attend for free if I could pass that aptitude test. I came lake house the same day and I told our mom that I was thinking about applying or the heating and air conditioner maintenance class. My mom was really supportive and she thought it was a enjoyable idea. She was gleeful that I could attend the technical school and learn about heating and air conditioner maintenance really for free. When our dad came lake house from work later that day, I excitedly shared the same news. My dad was less than enthusiastic… He really did not love the method of me working in a male-dominated industry. I tried to tell our dad that this is the twenty-first century and that is an ancient way of thinking, but he was distraught about our option for a long time. It took months and months before our dad came around to the method of me working in this competitive and male dominated industry.
