Diana Kennedy dropped out of high school at age 18. She admits she was never the best student, often cutting class and struggling to stay engaged.
When Kennedy later took a vocational automotive class, she discovered she enjoyed being around cars and ultimately found a sales position at a dealership.
"Automotive became the outlet for me that got me focused on something," Kennedy said. "Otherwise, I really don't know what direction my life would have headed in. But I feel like automotive came to me at the right time in my life."
