Jennifer DeWhitt planned to be a businesswoman or a banker, but instead she’s penning pop-up books for children.
How she traveled that perplexing path is a long story, but it’s one the 2005 Skyline High School graduate is eager to share. During her childhood, her family moved 13 times before winding up in a Klahanie neighborhood. It was the place she felt most at home.
As it turns out, DeWhitt’s nomadic journey has influenced her in a positive way. She struggled to make friends because she was trying to be someone else.
“What you realize is other people are looking to meet you on a genuine level, too, and that’s how you form real friendships,” she said.
