I was raised to hold every part of the world around me with equal awe and respect. I was asked when I was 5 years old what I wanted to be when I “grew up” and I responded that I wanted to be a starving artist (even then I knew the stigma that this world had for “artsy people”). Then I wanted to be a teacher, an actress, photographer, writer, art museum curator, teacher again, and many other things. I graduated from the University of Vermont in 2013 with a Bachelor’s in both Art History and English, and rather unexpectedly have found myself a Professional Scouter (District Executive with the Boy Scouts of America).
It’s not what you do for money that makes your education worth it- it’s how you use your education to make the world a better place.
