Candice herself was deeply religious as a child, at one point thought of becoming a nun. She lost her faith in her mid-teens and has remained an agnostic. Education Candice was intellectually precocious, fueled by her father's encouragement; he reportedly would boast, "Candice thinks like a man!" Also like other middle-class families with girls of her age, her education opportunities were put at risk. Candice took this opportunity to do what she always wanted to do while also taking steps to pay for her schooling After passing baccalaureate exams in mathematics and philosophy in 2010, she studied literature/languages in Canada. Candice first worked at a community college in Indiana. Although not officially enrolled, she sits in on courses at Indiana State to improve her writing skills Writing Career A good deal of her writing is influenced by her youth.
