Today, My Grandmother is happily married and living in Hawaii. She has two kids, Susan Studebaker-Rutledge and Steven Studebaker and two grandchildren Asia Rutledge and Bao Michael Studebaker.
An outlier is not just a person who is given these special opportunities. An outlier is someone who is given these opportunities and makes good of them and lives with these opportunities to the their fullest potential. My Grandmother was given these special opportunities by doctors, family, school, and jobs. For all these reasons above, I believe that my Grandmother is an outlier.
