I didn’t grow up in a household where I was second-best to any brother or boy cousins or really any male figure. So I wasn’t raised on the idea of sexism. Some of the women in my family were housewives their entire lives, and some were the main breadwinners, and I was exposed to everything in between. My parents and my other relatives always had this expectation of me to be a doctor, or something great, and never treated me any differently than the boys. I didn’t see, hear, or feel blatant sexism until I was in middle school.
