Her first paycheck: “It was in 1994 and probably around $150 after taxes. I worked at a coffeehouse the summer after my junior year of high school in Queens, New York, and continued throughout my senior year. I intended to save most of the money for when I went away for college but spent it on typical teenage nonsense.”
