WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY

  1. Mermaid - ages 3-5. Thanks Ariel
  2. Belle from Beauty and the Beast - ages 5-6. Because she got a library for a present.
  3. Novelist - ages 7-11
  4. Journalist - ages 12-15, when I decided being a novelist wasn't a very stable plan
  5. White House Press Secretary - age 15, thanks to CJ Cregg and The West Wing
  6. PR Specialist - ages 16-20, because in order to be CJ you had to work in PR first
  7. Community Relations Manager - ages 21-Present. Lucky enough to turn an internship into my dream career
