    I decided in the 10th grade I wanted to be a reporter. That summer I got a job in a neighborhood pharmacy and after a few months everyone thought I should be a pharmacist.

    Went to college, enrolled in pre-pharmacy--made horrible grades, changed major to Journalism. Graduated and worked for 16 years as a reporter before moving to PR for 22 years.

    In about the 8th grade I knew for sure that I wanted to be an engineer.  I enjoyed building/designing things and was pretty good at math.  At the time though I wasn't 100% sure on type of engineer that I wanted to be.  When I first started college I chose an aerospace engineering pathway.  It wasn't until about 2/3 of the way through college that I settled on water resources engineering.   By that time I got to experience a little bit of some of the other career paths. This helped me reinforce my decision.
