In high school I loved writing comedy sketches and spoofs about students and faculty. If someone would have told me I could make a living doing that type of comedy I may have had a clear life path! But no one said so. Maybe because SNL was still a few years away. Or maybe because my elders were too traditional. Or maybe because people were just too busy trying to figure out their own path to help me with mine.
Anyway, because of my own experience, I now make an effort to point out talents when I see them. To anyone. In any circumstance.
It is not just kids who need tips about what they were born to do.
