Pop star Gloria Estefan faced a crossroads after graduating from the University of Miami in 1978. Her choices included attending graduate school for clinical psychology, studying international law in Paris or pursuing a music career with the man she loved. "I listened to my inner voice and chose love," she said at her alma mater's fall 2010 graduation. "I believe that gut feeling we all experience at some moment is one of the most useful tools that we¿re given when we enter this life. It's important to listen to it, give it weight, because sometimes we can be blinded by the very knowledge with which we fill our heads."
