Micheline Mason: Parents
Here Micheline talks about her father supporting her.
TranscriptMy dad was an interesting man because he in general supported whatever came into my head. He was amazing in that way. He knew how to get behind me, you know. He wouldn't put me off, he'd never say, 'You can't do that,' or, 'That won't happen.' He just tried, he'd either keep silent if he thought it was unrealistic or he'd find ways to help, you know. He was great like that.
