Check out a quick excerpt below:
When did you decide that you were going to be a journalist?
When I was little, I always loved to write. In high school, I was interested in science and medicine and decided I wanted to be a doctor. Then, I went to school for pre-med and took some science classes and realized I had to no talent for science at all. I circled back to my first love, which is writing. I wanted a job that would let me write. I was really interested in current events and travel. I traveled a lot as a kid because my father worked at the World Bank. Journalism was the field that made the most sense to me and combined all of those things.
