How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

Evergreen is a crucible for helping you form your own opinion, and for finding out just who you are and what you are made of. I loved it ,and still value how I was allowed to explore the nature of work, the ideal of evolutions and transmigration not only of people but of plants, during the age of discovery. I still quote from the book we read Seeds of Change. The role of culture deepened my understanding in how it shapes how we respond and interact with not only ourselves but with our environment. The courses certainly helped me discover myself, and having found that core self, being able to defend it.
