Dear Dr. Magliato,
Hello my name is Karee Dinkel and I am a fifth grader at Holy Family Elementary in Hays, Kansas. I am getting ready to be in a program called famous figures where we do a report about a famous person. After looking on the internet about women heart surgeons I found you. I want to be a heart surgeon when I grow up like you. We ordered your book and found lots of good information. But still need some more information. Here are some questions if you time to answer them I would appreciate it. I don’t have much time before the report is due and I might not have time to finish your book.
What is your birthday? Including the year.
Did you really start a food fight in high school?!
How come you lost your spot as class valedictorian?
Is there something else you would like people to know about you?
Thank you for your time!
