Being both intelligent and sensitive, there are several careers that would fit you well. You should consider careers that utilize your social skills, such as public relations, advertising or promotion. In the same light, your analytical ability would be well-suited for a career in research or education. Your creative abilities may lead you to a career in writing, which was the path of Upton Sinclair, who was also born on September 20th. If you are tempted by the acting world, look to the successes of Sophia Loren, another of your celebrity birthday twins, for inspiration.
