When I grow up...


When I grow up, I want to be an Anna Wintour

-- no, a Jay-Z -- wait! A Beyonce.

Maybe I want to be a Steve Ells

-- or a Sheryl Sandberg.


I could be a Tavi Gevinson

-- a Malala Yousafzai

-- a Hillary Clinton.


But people are not jobs... People are people.

And I can’t be them… I can only be me.


Me, myself, I.

I am going to be a mover, a shaker, a game changer.

I am going to shift opinions.

I am going to close deals.


I am going to be everything I have ever wanted to be, and I am going to do it myself.


When I grow up,

I will not be an Anna Wintour --

I will be me.
