18–year–old Melissa Best has very high expectations for herself and so do her parents, but her friends wouldn’t describe her as a hard worker.

Melissa doesn’t want to give up on her plan but she’s not sure she can really live up to her high–achiever persona.

This was so great! I love Ms. Best's humor and her honesty. Thank you, Melissa!! Screw the UN, why don't you go into radio?
