    Williams College - How'd You Get There 2015

    Williams College - How'd You Get There 2015

    For the past five months, I’ve criss-crossed the country in search of Williams College alums who have ventured off the traditional path – alums who, through a combination of passion, creativity, and curiosity, have succeeded in turning their interests into real-world employment. I’ve spoken with artists and activists, entrepreneurs and farmers, musicians and fashion designers. I shared beers with a life coach in San Francisco, watched sunset with a farmer in Maine, and toured NPR’s studio with a radio host in Texas. In part, the journey offered the career exploration I never allowed myself to have when I was at Williams, but it was more than that. The stories I heard were an affirmation of the broad power of a liberal arts education and confirmation that there is no right way to live up to the “Williams ideal.”
