Last month my youngest daughter asked if I would write a letter of recommendation for her.
She had applied for a scholarship geared toward young women on their own who are working on making a better life for themselves. My daughter has been putting herself through school for about six years now.
When she asked, she had me at “Hi Mom. I need a favor.”
Unfortunately, according to the letter guidelines, as her mom I’m not eligible to write a letter of recommendation.
Moms don’t count.
