How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?
Though the business my partner (Tara - C/O 2010) and I set up has little - directly speaking - to do with either of our respective formal educations, Evergreen was incredibly formative in other ways. For one thing, we would have never met and discovered this loving and productive relationship we share. Perhaps more helpful for those considering Evergreen, it helped me personally learn how to stay nimble in my critical thinking and open-mindedness towards manifold ideas and complex issues. Evergreen introduced me to the art of learning and the joy that can be found in seeking new knowledge.
