    It was June 1984. I was two weeks out of high school and walking into my first job interview. I had grown up in the Buffalo area with a great love for reading and writing, but all the work I had done so far in my life revolved around mowing yards, helping farmers put up hay, and assisting my Dad move heavy pianos. I had never yet held a public job. I was 17 – and nervous as a cat.
