American Girl

I’m a thoroughbred American girl. I grew up on both sides of the coin.

I lived in a small town/city where there was always something to do, but not so small that everyone knew your name. I had freedom in that aspect to meet someone new as often or as little as I wanted. I saw first hand how public education, higher education, and capitalism could send people in different directions.

I also had grandparents who loved in a rural area not far from me where they grew a garden every year and had horses, barn cats, and dogs. I know what it’s like to dig your hands in the dirt and give a seed your undivided attention. I used to shovel the stalls, roll in the hay, and marvel at the instant gratification a tractor could provide.

Regardless of location and circumstance, I have seen success and defeat throughout my life in many different ways. It has helped mold me into the person I am today. A person who knows no matter where you are in this country, you can choose your path. It only takes a choice.
