When you were 17, what did you want to be?
I was in a program at my high school called KDGN, which was basically our broadcast service to the high school. We made a video every day, kind of a news program, kind of fun stuff, what’s going on in the school, on campus. My teacher, Ms. Rose, who was just incredible, was the journalism teacher. She focused on traditional broadcast journalism while allowing us to do fun, goofy, high school stuff. I loved that. I loved creating things every day, I loved not sitting at a desk. We got to leave campus, we got to come up with really fun skits. I was always in those creative and kind of nerdy classes, and this was a way to do that and have it be cool.
