Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Teachers:

    A teacher of an AP class in High School told me that women can't be pre-med; nobody will want to hire us, because we're just going to quit our jobs to be mothers!

  • How I responded:

    I knew there were women who were hired at companies and were doctors. So, I decided he was not saying anything worth paying attention to!
