Making Dumb Assumptions
Galina Espinoza, editor of Latina Magazine, shares a story of dumb assumptions. I had many of the same type of experiences in my college days.
In 1990, I had just started my senior year at an Ivy League college when my political science professor asked me to come see her about the first paper I had turned in. While she complimented me on how much work I had put into it, she went on to explain that writing a college paper must be especially difficult for someone for whom English was not her first language.
