When I was growing up, I never had aspirations of writing. Even as an adult, I never longed to write the great American novel. I believed I simply didn’t have the patience for it, though I had good writing skills. I worked hard to get into college, but once I was there I did little in the way of furthering my academic career and nothing in terms of building any future career.

Some people in my life have felt that my life story would have made a good plot for a book, but I'm not exactly comfortable sharing some of those intimate details.
I think it would have to be embellished and I would have to change the names of characters in order to protect the innocent though. College for me was a time for experimentation, introspection and discovering who I was .
