oriented world is that it actually provides more opportunities to the
generalist. The ability to articulate thoughts, incorporate new ideas,
and absorb change are, in my experience, often uncomfortable to the
specialist. Carolina introduced me to different cultures, religions, gov-
ernments, languages, and writers. Learning about Shakespeare one
semester and Hemingway the next helps you to recognize that there
is more than one approach and one answer. On Wall Street there are
many approaches and answers, and a liberal arts background
taught me to be open-minded about both.
I believe I will use my English degree everyday to analyze and
comprehend the world around me. Milton, Keats,
Shakespeare and Coleridge are relevant to all my interests,
including African development, because they inspire the
human spirit, the creative spirit. Writing poetry does more
than provide an outlet for ideas; it focuses my mind on
details, on creative solutions to complex problems. The
magnitude of the world is in a well-crafted sonnet, and the
spirit of the imagination finds poetry in everything.
