In the Community and Around the World
Lisa Schieffelin will tell you that if you count she has had about six careers. And she is thinking about her next one. A committed life-long learner and networker, she knows that sometimes an experience with a mentor, or an organization that you volunteer for, leads you to new doors. She believes also that being uncertain brings opportunities. Her Sage experience gave her opportunities to explore – different academic subjects, a wider circle of friends, a new sport, and to discover who she wanted to become. It also gave her the freedom to fail and the ability to recover, change direction, and find a new passion. But Lisa wasn’t a typical Sage student.
