From Sin City Resident to Sustainability Expert
My biggest experience stepping outside my comfort zone was making the decision to leave home to go to college. In a city where people can easily go work at a hotel dealing cards, parking cars, or, for girls, stripping, for thousands of dollars a night, going to higher education isn’t the first preference among high school students. For young people, there’s little interest in struggling when they can make thousands of dollars a night without a higher education.
Even for me at the time, I didn’t have too many people to speak to that had the experience of going to college. I had no one who had experienced going to college, aside from my teachers. It was really hard to get advice from anyone. I had to just trust that it would be a good investment in myself and that I, too, was worthy of achieving the American dream.
