What I wanted to be when I was a kid:
I liked science and biology, but I also really was creative and loved to write. I loved everything, but I had a hard time focusing.
What I studied in college:
I was in a program at NYU that allows you to design your own major. I focused on history and writing because I thought if you get out of college, and you can write well and you know a little bit about a lot of different things, you can be pretty much anything, except maybe a doctor!
