- - Summary of audio segment: BM says her parents always thought, father always said, how can you go into work at, for example, a McDonald's, when you're pursuing an education. They advised BM to work at jobs that use her brain. Probably wouldn't have liked it if BM had done manual work. BM worked for Elsa for a year, then worked for a silk screening place, which she liked because she had the chance to draw and do art work. They she got a job as a bank teller, the year before college, and during college also worked for a bank in New Brunswick. BM did undergraduate degree at Rutgers, went to Seton Hall Law School.
