Turn this ship around? How can I make better use of my degree?
I now really get that I don't have to have a low paying or local level job to be a good person. (I know that's really simplistic sounding, but it just didn't sink in until now.) Now I don't know what to do next.
I have a B average and three semesters of coursework left at my Ivy. I have a mixed bag of admin, event planning, and marketing skills. I want to make the most of the rest of my time here, but I don't even know what's out there, because I was clinging really hard to my plan to open a youth arts program one day, and now it feels like that's all I know how to do. I feel like I am not making the most of my degree.
/I'm seriously panicking about not making enough to support myself or a family.
But I have spent my last 5 semesters in school and my semester off doing arts mentoring or fundraising for schools, and I've already set up internships for next year working as an artist mentor and doing research with a nearby charter school and the city's arts and culture department.
What do you guys think? What can I do with the things I know how to do? What's a smart backup plan?
