“I know you don’t believe me, just like you don’t believe Mom when she tells you that you are beautiful. But
I’ll say it anyway: One day you will lead a very fancy life. Yes! A
girl like you whose parents work multiple jobs and barely make ends
meet can grow up to live in a beautiful corner apartment in Manhattan
overlooking the water, have weekend houses in the Hamptons and Miami,
attend fashion shows in Europe and be photographed for magazines.”
