Alumnae and friends of Barnard College gathered at New York’s historic Plaza Hotel for the Annual Gala 2012, which included an auction to benefit financial aid. The event raised over $2.4 million for scholarships.
When I was 6 years old, I remember defiantly stating that I wanted to grow up to be the first female president of the United States. By the time I graduated from Barnard, I was more inclined toward being the “next” Katie Couric. Today, I’m very happy as a writer, lecturer, and small-business owner.... but I’m wondering what these changed goals say about me and my generation?
