On Dixie Noble
My grandma Dixie Noble, is a kind, intellegent, persistient woman. She grew up in a less fortunate family. The family had less money, and her father was very hard on her. Dixie Noble grew up in a small town in Texas called Maybank, with one brother and three sisters. She started out not liking school very much, because she had teachers that demanded a lot of things from her and she was very overwhelmed at the time. Overcoming that, she left for collage at age at her early 20s. She had a very hard time at collage for a veriety of reasons. For one, she had just had a kid, so she had to work on her job as an fine artist, and at the same time, care for a kid by herself. (The husbands were not expected to help with the child at that time in history.) Because she had a hard time learning, and for the veriety of reasons I have already told you, it took her 10 years to get her undergraduates degree. Then, in the 1980s, she went back to school to get her PHD. She had many barriers in her way to get her PHD, but she made it. This proves how persistent she is. She is now 81 years old and lives on Mercer Island. She is still very persistent in taking up her pottery hobby, which started way back in collage. She is very kind, lighthearted, and seems to bounce off whatever hits her. I someday hope to be very much like her.
