I was just always interested in magic. Not necessarily real magic, but magic in pop culture. I was in love with Harry Potter, wizard games, stories about magic, and of course Halloween was my favorite.
In my freshman year of high school my friend gave me a book of spells (I think it's actually called Book of Spells by Nicola de Pulford) and I read up on it. It got me thinking about real magic, and I did more research eventually realizing this path was for me.
I still feel like it's the path for me.
