How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?
Evergreen has a great reputation in the field of arts and technology education. Evergreen also allowed me explore my options to find my passion in life. I had no idea when I started Evergreen, as a transfer student, that I would end up working in emerging arts technology, but it's a great fit.
