Kindling the flames of knowledge
When I was a little girl, my mother used to take me to the local library every week after school to look at books and magazines, and pick up new reads for the weekend.

I remember specifically one special issue of National Geographic that was devoted entirely to Ancient Egypt, with a wealth of photographs and illustrations that transported me several millennia back into the past. This magazine kindled a spark that developed over the years into a burning passion for Egyptology, which would in the end become my chosen career path.
