Maggie’s self-imposed much of that burden, felt he was losing control over their own lives, with up to six hours of homework every night and as little as five hours of sleep.
“Of my three children, she is far more motivated which in itself, but it is one of those girls who by nature can say, ‘I can enter this examination with a pencil and solve it very well,”’ said Duwelius Sarah his mother in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon. “I see her working so hard and I thought there must be another way.”
