EDUCATION. Education holds a special place in my heart . But not simply formal studies, education through experience and education fueled by passion. To learn, an individual must have a careful balance of humility and voracity. Humility to admit what you don’t know or understand and need some guidance. And voracity to persist in pursuit of the truth, knowing that some answers are simply unacceptable and more information is vital.
I have always felt I was my best advocate and I watched in awe as others successfully advocate for themselves. Theirs is a confidence that I strive toward each day. But greater still is watching this act in service of others. A path of support has been laid before me and my hope is to help others walk with me, surpass me, and continue to do great things. My own personal passion leads me towards the arts and entertainment, fashion and theater in particular. Having spent time in and around these industries, I have seen both triumphs and pitfalls in a unique lens.
