fit the mold copy

I was reminded the other day of once  being told that I couldn’t be molded into the perfect Turkish girl. That was the word used: molded. As much as I tried to do everything right, I wasn’t able to able to be the perfect Turkish girl because I couldn’t even fill the mold by not being entirely Turkish. My “American-ness” kept coming un-tucked, no matter how often I tried to tuck that back in.
