Miriam is the only kid in her family who didn’t seem to have an ambition to go to university.
All her cousins had big plans to join ivy league schools.
But, since Miriam was struggling in school, she never felt the drive to join college. Instead, she kept saying she’d think about what to do after college. Miriam began working at a local mall when she was 13 to make money. She loves making clothes and would use her salary to get supplies. Her mom also supplemented her income, but was also proud of the effort that Miriam was making. Perhaps she’d become a fashion designer when she grew up. However, Miriam wanted a stable job since security was crucial to her. She’d seen her mom have a good life working a stable job so Miriam thought about going to HVAC school. They’d had an HVAC expert come to speak at their school in senior year about the HVAC industry. He explained the pros and cons of the HVAC industry. Plus, the many opportunities to find stable and lasting work. Miriam was hooked on this because she knew she’d never lack work as an HVAC expert. Her desire was to work at this job and continue designing on the side. Perhaps one day someone would discover her work, but for now, working as a HVAC expert would make her life and future good. Applying to HVAC school wasn’t that hard, and Miriam also got a part time job working as an assistant to an independent HVAC professional. He was the guy who always came to fix their AC and Miriam knew she’d learn from the best.
