Term paper by Helen Kusuda for period III Social Problems class taught by Mr. Harry Bentley Wells, a teacher at Manzanar High School. Helen pursued stenography and secretarial work in junior high as she was fascinated by typing. Although fond of typing, Helen switched her major to Cosmology after taking a Home Economics course. She then describes the issues she had with transferring schools multiple times and trying to find the courses necessary to complete this major. At Manzanar, Helen describes the need to play catch-up and the desire to take both summer courses and to enroll in a junior college to help fill in the lost time.
