It was my high school graduation picture I had to work very hard for everything in schools pretty average student very social. When I went to college icy after the first year I told my mom I wanted to drop clouded she said forget about what you wanna do with your life if today was your birthday what would you want to do and I said. Wanna play with make up and she's in line become a make up artist. That Norman go to beauty school she's I'm sure there's a college somewhere. Somehow I found Emerson I wish I knew actually I don't wish nine. Because I'm so glad I didn't know what was going to be the story of my career. Because. Every fleeing that you go through there's a reason. And why it's so typical you don't understand the time but that's how you. That picture is from the very first Ford model of the year. Actually my first fashion show I was hired to be one of the makeup artist I'll never forget which you can't see in the picture. That lately. Because I thought I might as well get my exercise in line doing me. The makeup industry when I first entered it was really different there was not a whole lot of free. Lance makeup artist. There was not a lot of well known makeup lines there was not a path he kind of had to figure out for yourself. I never had a job. I just started knocking on doors building a portfolio. I don't even know how I eventually got hired but seven years after freelance him my personal cup. I was alive how to be an option nor without even knowing that the time. This picture makes my heart sing thirty years later. This is my wedding day fell in love with my husband that day I'm Adam Dunn occasions three months Mary six month after that men actually moved. In the suburbs of New Jersey and that excellent ideas for me to come back this picture just reminds me. And butterflies in my stuff and it is still love my husband.

Those boys are as good as any mom that's watching understands their kids are. I really think the secret. Doing it all which doesn't exist by the way doing at all you know just means making choices what is important to you. There's no question what's important has always put my family before anything else. I would go to the principal the first day school in asked for the school sing alongs the parent teacher conference.

That is a picture of me getting honorary degree and what I remember about that moment was looking out at the kids seeing. Myself when I was that age and realizing. How exciting in his you have this world in front of you. And I know you're nervous but don't be nervous because. These great things are gonna happen to you if you just go out and get them.
