Alla P. Gakuba

A PERSON IS A PRODUCT OF TIME, PLACE, AND CIRCUMSTANCES

In this book Alla P. Gakuba expertly postulates and shares with readers her knowledge and know-how skills: regarding when to take or not to take a risk; expertise on how to embrace new events and challenges; defining what self-esteem is; recognition that ability is nothing without opportunity; ideas and examples how to create national wealth; explanation what engineering is; and avoidance of despair, learning instead to stand up, fight back, and save oneself.

One story in this book--A person Is a Product of Time, Place and Circumstances--applicable to everyone, specially to American women and to the author herself. The time: the 1970s-1990s were historic years for American women. Turbulent, challenging and exiting years--in 1964 the Civil Rights Act was created in the USA. The place: the USA. The circumstances: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 gave, for the 1st time in American history, equal employment opportunity to women and to minorities--the opportunity to fail or to succeed, on their own terms.

Brilliant and pioneering women in these generations sacrificed, endured, and overcame monumental problems. They took a risk--millions entered the labor force and colleges to compete in hostile, male working environments.

The results were beyond wildest imaginations. Astonishingly, in less than 2 generations American women succeeded--they overtook American men in their accomplishments. Today 60% of American women are graduating with college degrees versus 40% of American men. More women are employed today than men, and women are more financially savvy than men, especially younger women. The author was also a product of this historic time and was working as a female structural engineer in an all-male profession. She survived, succeeded, and made many contributions.
