i'd like to drop out of high school and get a meaningless job that makes me feel bad about myself. i'd like to fall victim to the old boys' network. i don't want anybody to notice me. i just want to fly under the radar. i want to splatter against the glass ceiling. i don't have an opinion. i want to be a straight "c" student. i'm going to be a biomedical engineer.
[ girls laughing ] i mean, i want to succumb to peer pressure all of my life. i'm going to be a best-selling novelist and win the national book award. i'm going to be a marine biologist. wait! i take mine back. i'm going to be a biomedical engineer. i think i'll be the president. i'm going to be secretary of state. world-class chef right here. race-car driver. artist. paleontologist. film director. surgeon. teacher. scientist. olympian. i'm going to be the boss. i'm going to change the world.
hey. my name is katie, and i'm in the ninth grade. i'm an "a" average student, and i'm an athlete working towards a scholarship. and everybody tells me how much potential i have. but i just wish someone would tell me where my next meal is coming from. katie, how'd i do? do you have to be so serious? well, i mean, i did, like, a crazy dance in a movie if you want me to, like, you know, do a little--no? announcer: play a role in ending hunger. visit feedingamerica.org/hunger and find your local food bank.
ould i get tested for colon cancer? i don't have any symptoms.

[announcer] screening is recommended for men and women beginning at 50.
but no one in my family had colon cancer. it doesn't run in my family. [announcer] most colorectal cancers occur in people with no family history of the disease. but. that test... [announcer] there are several kinds of screening tests for colorectal cancer... talk to your doctor about which one is right for you. i've been screened...and it turned out i had polyps. and the doctor removed them before they had a chance to turn into cancer! [announcer] no buts about it... this is one cancer you can prevent! if you're 50 or older, talk to your doctor and get screened for colorectal cancer. screening saves lives!
