When I was a child, I wanted to be a marine biologist.
My bookshelf was full of books about sharks and dolphins.
I found out at a young age (ten or eleven) That I have a learning disability. I was told by society that girls could not excel at science.
That is when the dream got deferred.
But how will not be able to find the square root of a triangle affect my ability to attend to the injured fin of a Great White?
Will a dolphin's bottlenose grin be less wide for a woman than a man?
I have studied these five years- perhaps wrongly.
And now I feel it is too late to save that dream deferred.
