Gennifer Choldenko
By Brandi Waters

1     In your heart, you almost always know what is right. You know how you should behave. You know how you should treat your friends. You even know what is best for yourself. All you have to do is be honest with yourself and trust in what feels right. Gennifer Choldenko has proven that trusting yourself can bring some of life's greatest rewards.
2     Gennifer Choldenko was born in 1957 into a large and very loud family. She played and laughed with her brothers, sisters, and cousins. She also spent a lot of her time outside. She liked riding her horse and exploring the hills around her home in southern California. At six years old, Gennifer knew that she wanted to be a writer. It was a dream that she shared with her father. Gennifer's dad loved to write, and he enjoyed sharing his passion with Gennifer. Sadly, he never saw success as a writer. He worked very hard, but none of his work ever caught the attention of publishers.
3     Because of this, Gennifer was always fearful about choosing writing as a career. She knew how hard it was to be successful. Still, she chose to major in literature and creative writing in college. When she graduated, she found a job in advertising. She was good at her job, but, for the most part, she just didn't enjoy it. The part of her job that she did enjoy was drawing. She started taking night classes in illustration. Later, she was accepted to the Rhode Island School of Design. She quit her job in advertising and studied illustration fulltime.
