Fiorella was a star debater in junior high, but something of a dud in high school, which turned out not to matter because, along the way, she discovered that she didn't like to argue. Thus she eliminated law as a future profession. She was a good actress too, but didn't have the time for it. She'd been born with a talent for art, but the starving artist cliche is a reality so she dropped out of that scene and started teaching. The money was regular, and Fio liked her students, but the whole time--in fact, most of her life--Fio was writing poems, stories, and novels. So now, Fio's major employment is writing novels, at which she has been semi-successful.
Wish her well.
