S11, E3: Emily Powers on finding compassion
November 30, 2020
A fifth-grader watches her mother turn herself in on a forgery charge, after stealing from her employer to fund her opioid addiction. Thanks to support from her family, her teachers, and her mother herself, she thrives in school and even earns a nomination to West Point Military Academy.
My guest today is Emily Powers. Currently a freshman at Hanover College, she plans to double major in Biology and Sociology, possibly adding a minor in Philosophy. While she is still unclear about what the future holds, she has no doubt that she wants to work with people. Some of her favorite pastimes include journaling, personal fitness and reading.
