Living at that time was the hardest thing for anyone. We had no food, shelter and money. Also, searching for a job was tough as well. Even though you are perfect it was hard to enter your dream work. Being a citizen of this world I imagine myself as an army girl. Though, it was difficult but not impossible. Discrimination was at peak. Women are considered to be the weakest among all. To strive my way in I had to work hard but eventually succeeded and made my world proud.
Last thing "If you don't believe in yourself nobody will."
