  1. Privilege?
    Maybe. Maybe it is just opportunity that she made for herself.
    Either way, as someone who closer to the end of his career than at the beginning, I can say that early on is probably the time to do such soul searching about what you want to do with the rest of your life, and not after 20 to 40 years of working only to realize that you hated every minute of it.
    I switched careers a number of times – military, diesel mech., electronics tech and then s/w developer. I also got two different degrees. Some people thought I was lazy/crazy/etc. at first, but like Ellen, I decided being making these decisions for my own satisfaction was more important than doing them to please others expectations. I think that is the core of what she was getting at.
    Good for her.
