My career started before the Internet was born. I use that line with many college students as I talk with them. They laugh and give me a quizzical look. As I continue my story, I tell them years into my career, I finally learned to think critically, creatively and figure out how to navigate tough challenges.
Plosheye was my brother's best friend and the two would talk by phone for hours, while my parents watched, and grinned. Once in awhile I asked for a turn, but my attempts at conversation were met with silence. He's shy, my mother would say. He doesn't like you, my brother would declare. Eventually it occurred to me that he didn't actually exist.
