One of the reasons I waited so long to go back to school is that I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I grew up.  But from the time I was seven, the written word was my passion, so it seemed natural I pursue a writing degree.  In 2009 I found the perfect undergraduate program at ASU: Literature, Writing and Film.  I focused on creative writing, and finally knew what I wanted to do when I grew up.  I graduated, interned for a beauty and lifestyle magazine and was hired by a small publishing firm — my dream job.  When an acquaintance saw the piece I mentioned in Larger than life, he said, “I know that’s not your real passion.”  Although I didn’t go to school to write construction pieces or magazine articles, per se, I’m writing.  And as I told my friend, “I would write the phone book if I was asked to because writing makes me happy.”

Have you found happiness in your vocation?
