Book - In 2020, I Want a Woman President 2nd Edition Author Lolu Adebayo
Excerpt> Character- Angelica...
Actually, apart from the current survey results that more women were getting better skills and more advance education than men, but women were offered fewer managerial positions. I ran into a lady in the elevator in my apartment complex. I said hello and introduced myself, and she was warm and friendly too and told me her name was Angelica; then I gave her my business card in anticipation to get hers too. I paused for a second, but she was not giving me back her business card in return. We got off from the elevator, and it so happened she was going toward the parking deck too. She was so accommodating and seemed like a very nice person, and we continued our conversation. So I asked, "What do you do for a living?" And she replied she had a bachelor's degree in Economics and master's degree in English and that actually she had a part-time job and also a temporary job in her field of studies but with no prospect of becoming permanent because the company she was working for had a freeze on hiring full-time workers because of the way things were going with the global economy.
So she decided to go for a more advanced degree; actually she was on the way to meet with an admissions officer for the PhD program. That was impressive, although I did not ask her how old she was, but probably she was in her mid or late twenties. She was so beautiful and professional--great personality. I walked her to her car and said good luck on the job search and the meeting with an admissions officer for her PhD program. I got to my car and tried to start my car but no luck, I was so disturbed because then I had to call some of my clients and cancel appointments, and I was planning to travel soon, so I had to do a lot with my committed assignments and projects before my travel. While I was still going through all these thoughts, I saw on my car's side mirror somebody was approaching toward my car, and I looked back and realized it was Angelica. So I told her, "I thought you left already." But she said she had noticed while she was passing by my car that it seemed I was having problem starting my car, because she was looking to wave and say, "Good-bye!" But I was so consumed trying to crank up my car. Angelica suggested I probably needed to jumpstart my car, but I told her that I had a similar problem with my car a couple of days ago, and the people gave me a new battery for free because I still had a warranty on that battery.
So I was wondering what the problem could be. I tried to start the car again, and fortunately it started. I was relieved, but I knew my car had a major electrical problem. Angelica smiled and left, and I was on my way to my appointments too but was running a little bit late for the first appointment. Fortunately there was no major traffic delay, so I made it, but still puzzled why my car would not start. So I decided I would go and buy the ignition switch and find a roadside mechanic to fix that for cheap instead of going to the car dealer for diagnosis. I was always skeptical of dealing with car dealers because I assume they will charge me an arm and a leg; and to fulfill my personally imposed austerity measures to stay afloat during the bad global economy, then I had rather go the cheap route. Big mistake, because I ended up spending a lot more than what I should have paid the dealer to check my car and pinpointed the problem instead of my guesswork, which resulted in me buying unnecessary parts. And unfortunately they told me I could not return them because they were electrical parts, once installed in my car--so I have been stuck with them.
I met Angelica again at the parking deck when I got back home later that day--what a coincidence! It was as if we had planned to meet again at that time. I was delighted to see her again; then she asked if I took my car for diagnosis at the dealer's to find the real problem. But I did not know her that much, so I just told her I would be going tomorrow. I knew I was not going to do that but instead meet with my roadside mechanic as planned and install the ignition switch I had just ordered. I was curious, so I asked her where she was from and said that she actually looked like an associate of mine, Kathy. Jokingly I said, "I guess she might be your twin sister."
But she replied, "I don't have a twin sister, and I'm from here," and asked why I thought she was from another country. I said because of her facial features, her light brown skin and of course, the beautiful, shining black hair that was so long, up to almost to her waistline. She giggled, smiled, and said, "Thanks for the compliments."
She had no accent for me to be in the position to guess where she was originally from. But before I got into that, she said to be specific, she was born in New York; but her parents were from Brazil and Italy and that they migrated to the United States in the 1970s. I knew she was curious too about where I was from originally, and she said, "I know you are not from here, so where are you originally from?" I smiled and asked her to guess at least from my thick accent, and she guessed right, and I was shocked because I thought she would probably
guess the right continent but not my country of origin. Then I asked how the meeting was with the admissions officer for her PhD admission process, and she said her chance was fifty-fifty and that although her grade point average (GPA) was 3.9, she was a straight A student but unfortunately had a B in one of her courses.
I was so impressed--3.9 out of 4.0 GPA. So I asked why she thought her chance was fifty-fifty, and she said that was from the feedback she got from the admissions officer, that since she was not interested in getting a student loan because she was scared of accumulating more debts because she still owed some student loans. She was scared to add more, especially with the state of the global economy; again, she could not secure a permanent job at the moment.
Then I asked her what about grants and scholarships for education. I stressed that for those she did not have to pay them back. But she replied that according to the admissions officer, the scholarships and grants were not guaranteed as ever for students that had good GPA, especially for women, because more women are going back to school than ever and actually showed her the PhD admissions in the past three years; and it was 100 percent, 90 percent, and 100 percent respectively of women in the PhD programs compared to men. She said she was stunned to see that kind of statistics of the yearly enrollment of women compared to men and that she explained further that statistics were not just for that particular school but nationwide.
So that was one of the major reasons it would be so difficult for more women to qualify because it was already saturated, and she did not see the trend changing anytime soon--more women getting advanced skills and better education to meet the demands of the new millennium.
