WHAT WALLS DO YOU BUILD TO STAY SAFE?
I build a lot of walls. I build walls made of strong moral beliefs. I build walls between the best parts and the worst parts of me. I build singularly-focused walls when hard work is required. I build walls for personal comfort. I build walls to make the world seem easier to manage.
Most of my walls fell down around me by the end of my second term of Experience Institute (Ei). After several weeks of sifting through opportunities, I began an apprenticeship with Ei in Chicago—balancing a complicated role as a student and a staff member. The term included team collaborating, strategic planning, marketing and video editing.
