WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY

  1. Veterinarian
    I gave up on my dream of becoming a veterinarian the moment I discovered that vets can't always save the animals they treat. It was a heartbreaking realization.
  2. Figure skater
    I grew up on ice skates. I loved skating and when I wasn't skating, I was watching it on TV. I can't quite remember why I decided this wasn't a viable career path. I think I gave up on this dream when I found a new one...
  3. Journalist
    I discovered Superman and that was it for me. Lois Lane was everything I wanted to be. My goal as a young girl was to one day write for a newspaper just as she did. This dream never really left me. I wrote for my high school and college newspapers, majored in Communication, and currently write for a website I helped create with my best friend.
