Student Can't Decide If She Wants To Grow Up To Be John Krasinski Or Janet Yellen

Published Friday, October 26th, 2018

Mulling over her career options in a meeting with a CareerLAB counselor, student Sam Chen just can’t decide if she wants to grow up to be John Krasinski or Janet Yellen.

“I know what kind of career options are available to me with a Brown degree: I could be a John or a Janet,” Chen explained. "It’s just a matter of deciding which post-Brown path is right for me. I could be a funny, lovable, jokester-type with a lot of social capital but minimal lasting socio-political impact. Or I could be the Chair of the Federal Reserve. I just don’t know how to choose!”

“A major reason why I chose to come to Brown was because of the career options that would be available to me post-grad,” Chen continued. “But at this point in my life, I’m not sure if I’m leaning more toward being on an Emmy-nominated sitcom or overseeing the Federal Reserve Banks for four years.”

After browsing Brown Connect, Chen decided to become Daveed Diggs instead.
