You look like you’re in high school says a women who knows I’m on her pay roll. I am 20, in four months I will be of legal drinking age and in nine months I will have finished college with a bachelors in science.
I do not feel like I look like a child.
I walk with confidence, I work year round while being committed to school, Greek life and family obligations.
Three years out of high school and this stranger makes me feel the need to grow and age and make it clear that I am beyond that.
Before seeing my resume. Before getting to know me. One glance and I’ve almost completely been overlooked. My third summer working full time for the same amazing people who all used to know me.
I have youth in my face that means in two years I will still be carded everywhere I go by people who see me as a youngin.
