Austin is a recent graduate of 'Wayfinding Academy' in Portland, Oregon. It's common to hear that the education system is broken, but what I think this conversation provides is a rare glimpse into the possible future of higher education.
We talk about the courage required to step outside the curiosity-crippling traditional system into what he called the 'space between stories' and develop new worldviews.
I found it inspiring to see the path that he has now found which feels more aligned with the human he aspires to become.
