Hi, I’m Kay Winter, 21, from Connecticut, USA. I’m joining Knowmads because I want a context in which I can realize my potential as a leader and changemaker. I grew up homeschooled, learning from the world. Rather than trying to fit into a higher education system that I knew wouldn’t work for me, I tried to find a place that would encourage me to be myself, and help me become a well-rounded individual. I love to be in environments that challenge me, and show me alternative perspectives from which I can learn. Knowmads will help me build my confidence in myself, and in the ways I want to help the world.
