What would you do or risk for a high school education? Friend Tammy Fadler grew up in Vietnam and she went out of her way to attempt going to school. She bartered and begged such that her family would allow her to go to school. That determination carried her throughout her life. Eventually she worked all sorts of small jobs for American soldiers on a base in Vietnam. She married a GI and she did end up in the USA later. She came to the United States with $10 and a one way ticket to the wrong city. She was still filled with an incredible determined spirit and became a successful entrepreneur in the real estate industry. Today she is a sought after motivational speaker too (discover more here).
You can read about Tammy’s story in her book Finding the Pearl: Unstoppable passion, unbridled success. In the event that you should feel depressed or powerless, please pick up a copy of this book and read it. It is a testament to how the capabilities of the human spirit can overcome just about any hardship. Tammy had so much stacked up against her and yet she never relented. Her life’s journey furthermore provides proof how our country provides ample opportunity to anyone who desires to seize it.
I am proud of you Tammy! She found the pearl and so can you. Happy reading (it makes a perfect gift too!).
