A mission I support

Here is a story of how The Christian Science Monitor changed my career.

I was never planning to go to college. School was a bitter disappointment, and I couldn’t handle teachers’ criticism. It was very discouraging and I felt academically inferior.

At 18, I was working as a dishwasher in a kitchen. My boss had promoted me to a waiter position, but after two weeks I was sent back to the dish room. I was too shy to ask her why. All of those frustrations from school reignited my fears of inferiority. So I suffered in silence. But I prayed. I asked God for guidance. And like many things that come from God, the message was surprising.
