“SelfDesign let me see the truth . . . it let me see into the true nature of reality – how things actually are – and because of that it has helped me see how I actually am, and how I want to be, rather than the expectations that others placed on me. “
Sarah Wilson, SDGI learner, chats with Renee Poindexter about how she designed her own Masters degree with SelfDesign Graduate Institute. Sarah Wilson is in her second year with SelfDesign Graduate Institute, she is 24 and lives in Vermont, USA.
” I went to my normal public school and never felt like I fit in, I never felt like I was really learning, information would go in one year and out the other and it just didn’t feel like the right fit for me. I knew I was smarter than the people around me were telling me I was. I also knew that I was passionate and interested in other subjects that weren’t available in the public school curriculum.”
