WOMEN’S OUTDOOR NEWS -- I left San Francisco State with more than an Art degree. I gained an education that prepared me for life.

Ask someone why she attended college, and she probably would say she went to earn a degree that would allow her to get a job.

It’s true that college helps us do that. But there are so many other aspects students gain from the experience.

  • You learn patience.
  • You develop a work ethic.
  • You build human connections.
  • You broaden your worldview.

Those lessons proved valuable not only in navigating life’s challenges, but also in shaping my shooting career.
