How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

Evergreen's cutting edge approach to learning opened me to a world of opportunity if I was willing to apply myself and motivate my visions and goals into action. I was able to explore who I was as an artist and to grow within an educational community which valued and encouraged those that wanted to step and think "outside of the box". I am grateful for having the Evergreen experience; it has helped me in becoming who I am personally and professionally and to persevere as a life long learner.
