An idealist full of ideas
"What we call a person who has a full of ideas and passions to make a change but their ideas are impractical?" my friend asked me sarcastically even though he knew that he was talking about me.
"An idealist," I said
Is being an idealist a bad thing? I don't think so. I believe that idealists are able to imagine an outcome that is better than anything otherwise conceived of. It is true that sometimes their ideas are impractical, but the ability to recognize an outcome is the first to making it possible. Even when their projects scatter in front of them, they already start to see new ways of doing it. They are also leaders of a community because they can question the reality and sees how the world could be made better, and therefore, an idealist changes the world.
Earlham values the idealist perspective and helps their ideas become a tangible outcome in or out of the classroom. This is why Earlham is a perfect fit for me because I hope that I can contribute my "idealistic" ideas to EPIC collaborations so that creating a more diverse community to view significant national and global challenges of the 21st century from a different perspective.
