Liz discusses 5 things that changed her life:
- Self-inflicted near-sightedness. How she faked vision problems when she was a kid just to get glasses
- Becoming a teacher instead of a doctor and becoming an actor instead of a teacher
- Visa lottery. How her family won a green card lottery to come live in the United States
- Meeting her husband. Sometimes you just need to eat a sandwich before taking over the world
- A restless artist. Unsure of how to move her career forward yet itching to perform. How a writing assignment in class became a one-person play.
