She did not become that way until college and credits 2 professors that instilled that into her with their innovative approach to teaching and their ability to get their students to problem solve and continue to research about a topic after the lesson was over. She wants to help teachers and students develop that curiosity and willpower to keep learning before they graduate high school.
