There used to be this drama series called The Pretender. The blurb for the show reads:
There are extraordinary individuals among us known as PRETENDERS. Geniuses with the ability to insinuate themselves into any walk of life, to literally become anyone. In 1963, a corporation called the Centre isolated one such PRETENDER, a young boy named Jarod. Locked in a controlled environment, they exploited his genius for their “unofficial” research. Then, one day, their PRETENDER ran away.
It was from this drama series that the notion that I could be whatever and whomever I wanted to be took roots.
