Pauline Rose Clance & Suzanne Imes - 1978 - high-achieving women
After winning an Academy Award: "I thought it was a fluke. [It was] the same way when I walked on the campus at Yale. I thought everybody would find out, and they'd take the Oscar back.

example-->You shouldn’t have
example-->esp with first-gen college students
