Today has been the strangest day of my life. I know, that sounds like the dramatic ramblings of a seventeen-year-old girl, but it’s the absolute truth. Until today, I was an orphan, an uneducated ward of the government with no employment prospects on her horizon. But as of today, at least one of those is no longer true.
I may never know the parents who abandoned me at the age of four. And by most people’s standards, I will always be more streetwise than book-smart. But I have been offered a job. For the first time in my life, I am looking ahead to the next phase of my life, instead of focusing on a past I cannot change. Ironic, considering how little I know about my new employer and the position I’ve been offered…which is precisely nothing at all.
