Take it from lazy and non talented types, no one gives a shit what your origins are, just what you do with the opportunity presented to you. You do you, that’s all anyone can ask for. And please don’t assume school or behavior there is any indicator of future performance.

Also, you’ll soon realize this job is full of people who suffer from this guilt and fear for numerous reasons.
