Someone recently asked me what I do. After thinking about it for a minute, I realized that the best answer is that I learn. All day, every day.
At CrossFit, I learn how to move my body, push myself, and understand what strength means to me.
At school, I learn how to be a chemical engineer. That includes all of the skills associated with the profession.
At work, I learn more and more about leadership, education, mentorship, and humility.
In EWB, I learn how to build relationships, work within organizations, be a leader, and think critically about my actions and the actions of others.
I also realized that I kind of love it and wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m a learner, and that’s awesome. Hopefully I can maintain this for the rest of my life.
