“My neighbor has a bumper sticker that reads: “Remember Who You Wanted To Be.”  Did you grow up to be who you always wanted to be as a child?”

Hmmm, I don’t remember who I wanted to be as a child. A teacher maybe?

The first person I really remember wanting to be was Barbara Walters. That was probably in middle or high school. I remember specifically telling my mom that I didn’t want to be “the next Barbara Walters, but the first Susan Ess*x.”

Yeah, I had a healthy ego even then. But then I saw myself on camera and knew it was not to be. I can photograph well, but I am so not good on video.
