What shapes us as people and how that feeds into who we are and our sense of identity has been both my educational and career driver. Sitting in class and seeing these educated intelligent people not being able or comfortable to think out of the box, even though they had argued strongly how and why the box wasn't working, showed me that education in and of itself isn't enough. People need to be able to make a mindset shift and see things differently, that freed me to know it is ok to go my own way because that is what needs to happen to make change work.
