Personal Quote:

[1978, interview in "Close Up"] Working is an important part of my life and identity. To be a fulfilled person, I would have to be doing something in addition to raising a child and running a house. Unless I'm feeling good about myself, I wouldn't be able to create the right environment for my family. See more »
