Seven Accomplished People Share Their Stories
Edutopia invites seven people to write about their personal education and career decisions:
"Successful lives are often the result of what is learned when we are supposed to be learning something else. The following seven personal stories, from accomplished men and women in fields ranging from music to magazines, from real estate to restaurants, from television to literature -- CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour
, U.S. Representative Barbara Lee
, author Lemony Snicket
, builder Donald Trump, mezzo soprano Frederica von Stade
, restaurateur Alice Waters
, Smithsonian editor in chief Carey Winfrey
-- illustrate the crucial importance of such hard-to-measure factors as serendipity, curiosity, and coincidence, and often a teacher with a keen instinct about a student's unsuspected potential."
