As a child I collected paint swatches. I cut out each square and created a notebook of color stories. I was also my Barbie’s hairdresser, a well-known real estate agent in monopoly and with several regrettable childhood fashion choices, my own personal image consultant. I have always had multiple interests.
In a world where decisiveness is power, this multi-interest of mine has always been a confusing sort-of double edged sword. No one wants to be a jack-of-all-trades because mastery in those trades can’t exist right? Did I mention I enjoy breaking rules?
I’ll admit I’m still figuring it all out but there are a few things I’m certain thst I will no longer allow my multi-interest to be a negative.
As of June 2012 I have begun my journey as a Peace Corps Trainee, upon successful completion of the 3 month training I will be super excited to announce my transition to a full-fledged Peace Corps Volunteer. Still curious? There’s a bit more at http://www.teneashapierson.com
