(2/2) I want to thank Jorrie again for taking the time to speak to me. If you haven’t done so yet, I recommend you check out her page Close to Classy. It’s filled with funny and insightful content for parents.
“If you had to give just one piece of advice, what would that be?”
“There’s absolutely nothing that you can’t do. The sky is genuinely the limit. And even if someone tells you that you can’t do it, do it anyway. Prove them wrong. I was told that I wasn’t smart enough to go to college and I believed it for a while. I didn’t think I was smart enough to go to school for medicine. But I finally one day decided to go to school and I graduated summa cum laude. So believe in yourself. And even with my writing, I didn’t think I would be able to be in a book and do nursing at the same time, but I found a way to do both. Just keep trying. Put one foot in front of the other and the sky’s the limit.”
