Studying Humanities shifted my center from the cultural norms of the West. It expanded my comfort zone and set me up for a lifelong self-study in the affairs of the global community. For better or worse – and despite the isolationist trends that come and go in our political system the United States will forever be involved in world affairs. So while the STEM professionals toil away in labs (and we are indebted to them for that!), our global-minded professionals will engage other human beings. I've been able to make friends, forge partnerships, and outsmart shared enemies, all thanks to an education in the Humanities.
