I graduated yesterday from Harvard University. Harvard Kennedy School first and then Harvard Law School, to be precise. And I feel whole.
I feel whole because now I’ve completed all of the formal education that fulfills my innermost desires, and now I can begin to act on the changes that I would like to see in the world. For me, formal education has been about taking steps towards an end—obtaining the means by which my achieving the ends I desire will come with the respect it inherently would have deserved on its own, save these other “prerequisites.” So, I have attained those. Any now, the excitement begins.
