A different view on the world

Tonight I was speaking with my professor after class and I mentioned that I went to St. A's back when 90% of the women there were nursing majors and I was a Lit major.

He laughed and said, "You were breaking ground, a pioneer."

I had never thought of myself that way.  I had seen myself as an outsider, someone who didn't fit in.  But his words made me realize I was born to stand out.  It was a different perspective I needed to hear.  It makes me wonder how many of us forget that other perspective.
