NoJoMo Day 5

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

From about the fourth grade, I wanted to be a doctor! So much so that in HS I took 4 years of Latin, 5 years of Science (2 science classes in one year), and 4 years of advanced match. I was accepted to all the colleges I applied to as a Pre-Med major and began my college career in that major. But, I quickly learned that I had burned myself out in HS. Plus, I was drawn to the Conservatory of Music and began a second major in Vocal Performance. It was difficult to mesh those two degrees together (labs often interfered with choir, etc.) and eventually, the Pre-Med fell to the wayside in favor of music. When all was said and done, 27 years of college later (as of May 2015), I will have finished college with an Associate Degree in Supervisory Management, a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and a Masters Degree in Business Administration. I will also have finished with more student loan debt than I probably would have had if I had stuck with Medicine. Oh well....I can't change that now! I am considering pursuing a second Master's Degree in Forensic Accounting for two reasons: to continue to defer my student loans and so I can get a job with the FBI or law enforcement doing forensic accounting. Sounds like fun to me!!! I also have to sit for my CPA exam yet which I will begin studying for in the spring of 2015. Yes, I am crazy...nice to meet you!

I admire your determination and fortitude to stick it out and get your degree amongst all the other things you've had going on in your life all these years. I am so proud of you!!

A Juvenile Defense Attorney for the state of NY. Everyone knew that's what I wanted to be from the age of about 12. I got as far as prepping for the LSAT, weeks before graduating with a degree in criminal justice and my last week of an internship at a juvenile court house. It was an amazing experience but I found out a lawyer wasn't that of a TV lawyer.
