"I’m with you, Harriet! In the 7th grade, I was told by a boy classmate that I would never get into the U.S. Naval Academy. I said to him, “Oh yea? Watch me!” And the rest is history."
"Funny thing, in my school here in Africa, Nairobi, Kenya to be exact, my high school Deputy principal told me the same thing and added that I’m a pothead from the ghetto and will never amount to anything."
