I grew up in Charleston, SC as the youngest of four siblings. Nobody in my family had gone to college and graduated and from a young age I knew that was exactly what I would do. My dream was to go to college, get a degree, move away from Charleston and live in many places and have friends all over the world and to have friends that were physicians and lawyers and mayors and senators and important people - looking back I have no idea why this was a goal. I also wanted to have multiple homes and to travel to places that I had read about in books and where people spoke different languages and ate foods that I had never tried before and I am proud to say that these things have all come to fruition. Life is about dreams and goals and attaining those goals --- then making new dreams and setting bigger goals and doing it all over again.
