Our different paths

Our different paths

I remember that time we visited Moscow. I’d never been there before. You used to live there when you were a child with your parents Boris and Naina Yeltsin. As we walked the streets of Moscow, you told me about how your father wanted you to succeed him as the President of the Russian Federation. However, you wanted to be a cabaret singer in America. When you were old enough, you left home, came to America and got a job singing at the Soup Spoon Cabaret in Detroit. 

I told you I admired your tenacity. I shared when I was a kid, I wanted to be a bubble gum tester for Bazooka Joe. My parents felt that was a good idea. I didn’t like that they liked my ambitions and I decided to become a CEO for a big company. When I was old enough, I left home and applied to be CEO for General Electric and got the job. I was there for 12 years and was never happy.
