How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

Evergreen prepared me to be a leader; to take risks; to be resourceful; to take initiative; to take responsibility for creating my life; to know that I can make a difference in the world; to formulate and ask powerful questions; to be curious; to be self-reflective and self-aware; to request and allow support from others; to collaborate; to enroll others in a vision; to create supportive working and learning environments; to make work fun; to see a bigger picture; to see connections and interrelationships; to see possibility everywhere – and go for it.
