I turned 30 on June 6, 2014. Instead of a “30 under 30” list, I took some time that day to put together a “30 Exactly 30” list. I rooted around the internet to find thirty people born on exactly the same day I was. A lot of them were athletes, actors, and pop musicians from around the world, but I also found two female visual effects artists (which is a lot in an industry that male-dominated), a writer credited on an Indian film about Ashoka that I really want to see, and last but not least a Ugandan Minister of State.
This was a really fun thing to do, and I got to find out about a lot of really interesting people from everywhere who are exactly my age. It was a blast, and a really fun way to celebrate my birthday. I hope you like the list, too.
