“an educated person is one who has learned how to learn…how to adapt and change.”(Merriam, 2014, p. 31)
I once read that the learned inherit a world that no longer exists. I take this to mean that an educated person is only educated as long as they continue to grow, develop and adapt to the changes of our globalized world. I have considered myself someone who thrives in a problem-based environment but I have come to value the proactive environment of looking at opportunity.
