Interview With Dr. Kshama Metre
Posted by Ward Mailliard on Jul 26, 2015
We just posted up an interview between Dr. Kshama Metre the head of CORD (Chimayananda Outreach for Rural Development) and our students. She is an deeply dedicated woman doing great important and gorund breaking work. One of our seniors, Zoe Kelly, wrote about the experience:
"Everything she said was rich with wisdom, but one quote in particular stood out to me. “Take the journey within and the one without won’t be so daunting.” This sentiment struck me very deeply. At this point in my life, there is a world of unknown ahead of my classmates and me. Soon we will be leaving behind the comfort of childhood to enter the mysterious world of adulthood. Such a transition is daunting and can be very overwhelming. However, Dr. Metre made me realize that my journey isn’t defined by what college I go to or what profession I choose. My true path is one for my conscience, and I create it every single day, through my thoughts and emotions. This journey, “the journey within”, is completely under my control."
