A Circuitous Route

by Jason Smith '91

"Through a series of events, some of my own doing, some of not my own doing, this is where I landed and I think it’s a testament to the fact that we don’t know what we don’t know. If I keep a positive, optimistic outlook towards what comes next and an open-mindedness about what it might look like, your life can change dramatically for the better."

Jason Smith '91 moved out to Littleton, CO in early 2020 and got involved in work with the Denver Dumb Friends League as an adoption counselor. We chat about the challenges of following a traditional path versus pursuing one’s passions, the joy of making an adoption match, and keeping an open mind.

Interview is part of the on-the-road 'We the Purple' Williams College alumni conversations held during Ephs on the Mooove in July 2021. Explore more conversations. 'We the Purple' concept and flags designed and donated by Penny Brewer '76, inspired initially as part of the class of 1976's 35th reunion celebration in 2010.
