There was a girl that was told at a young age, that she had a problem, and that she wasn’t as good as everyone else. She was told she was not as smart as everyone else and she was going to have to accept that. She was put in to special classes, where they put all the kids that didn’t quite fit in. They taught these students the simple subjects, figuring they wouldn’t be able to grasp the more complex. Some of the students in this class, it was true, they had some mental deficiency that didn’t allow their brains to process as much information as an average student. There was another truth that some of the students in this class were highly intelligent, and now, limited only by what their peers had labeled them.
This girl, over a time, did her best to hide from the label. She made sure that other kids didn’t see her go in and out of the special classroom, and did her best to fit in any way she could. One day, although still unsure of herself, she grew powerful, and became certain that the labels put on her, the limits that the teachers and peers had assigned to her, were not her truth.
She graduated high school, and went on to community college. In order to complete the work of reading and writing as much as required for her classes, she knew she had to work harder than others. You see, this girl was born with dyslexia, a limit only for others that expected everyone to be the same.
Through her determination, she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from a state college. Not only is she as capable as everyone else, she has shown that she will work harder, consistently, and she will believe her truth, not what she is told is the truth.
