DHow did Evergreen prepare you for your profession life?

I just opened a community based non-profit arts organization that offers free and low-cost art classes to people of all ages in Crown Heights, Brooklyn--an intense inner city neighborhood in New York. Attending Evergreen was inspiring because it's built on the principle that everyone deserves access to good education regardless of social, economic, political & cultural realities. Evergreen also nurtured the idea that giving back to communities in need-- being of service -- is a path that can lead to true inner happiness.
