“The second week of my sophomore year of college, I walked into my 9:00 a.m. history class and asked myself, ‘What am I still doing here?’

I was doing what I'd always done: what was expected of me...In a very typical American sense I was “successful.” But I didn’t feel successful, I felt lost. And to find myself again, I wanted to be challenged every day. I wanted to learn new ways of thriving outside and remember how to love learning.”
