Back home in Newfane after college, Henriette Mantel read an article with a crazy idea: if you don't know what to do with yourself when you graduate, write three people you admire and ask for a job.
So the 22-year old Mantel wrote letters to Margaret Mead, Charles Schulz and Ralph Nader.
A few weeks later, Nader's office responded.
Sure enough, Mantel packed her bags, moved to Washington, D.C., and worked for a year as an office manager for the consumer rights crusader.
