From all outward appearances, Forbes seems like a typical college student. Commuting to campus from her home in Red Hook, New York, she is a Digital Media major with a concentration in Graphic Design and minor in Creative Writing, which has been great preparation for Forbes’ career as an author. “I’m my own marketer and manager," says Forbes.
