Today I drove up to Gaithersburg, MD to interview a prospective student for the Frances Perkins program at MHC. The Frances Perkins program is for students of non-traditional age, women who have had their education interrupted for whatever reason and are ready to return.
As an alumna, I was doing her a favor by interviewing her. But she gave me a gift in return, one quite unexpected on my part and unintended on hers, I'm sure. The gift was being allowed to hear her story. How amazing, how inspiring. I'll write more if I hear that she's been accepted.
Truly a gift.
