What drew you to education?
I always knew I wanted to work in education, but what cemented it for me was my work on my undergraduate thesis. When crunching the numbers, education was one of the sole variables positively associated with positive indicators of success (e.g., higher income, stronger interpersonal relationships, more self-awareness, etc.) and negatively associated with negative indicators (e.g., likelihood of incarceration, drug abuse, low life satisfaction, etc.). When thinking about what mission I would like to work for, education was the obvious answer.
