Watching my son accept his Bachelor's Degree from the University President sent chills down my spine and put tears in my eyes. Thankfully, I get to live through it again this coming May with my daughter, then again in a couple of years when he gets his Doctorate. My son will be the first person in either side of the family to earn a Doctorate and I have no doubts he'll succeed. At the moment, he is taking his courses and teaching for two universities - one in person and one over the Internet. And if you're wondering, he didn't attend the ceremony for his Master's - he just got the diploma by mail. He said it's nothing but a stepping stone to what he wants.
I graduated high school with honors. Everyone thought I was dumb. It wasn't until the tenth grade that a teacher said I was smart enough to take college prep classes. I pulled my average up from a D to an A plus in three years.
The moment I accepted my stuttering problem and I stopped considering myself as a loser. Now, I don't mind if I stutter, I try to focus on my other positive potentialities.
