i'm a 22-year-old social innovator with strong interests in education, technology, culture, journalism and art through the lens of social entrepreneurship.
i have a diverse background, drawing from professional work experiences in the fields of journalism, education, student affairs, graphic design and social network technology. i value diversity because i feel it is absolutely necessary for innovation and strong collaboration.
i grew up in hawaii for 18 years and left for college in 2007. i attended washington state university, where i graduated in 2011 with a bachelor's of arts in journalism and a minor in psychology. during and after college, i worked in residence life and advising, and taught an introductory psychology course to two sections of undergraduate students for three semesters.
my hunger for curiosity and passion for journalism has taken me around the world to places like Ecuador, Guatemala, Kosovo, Turkey, Jordan, Israel and elsewhere. I will never stop exploring and pushing the boundaries.
i love music, traveling, art and the outdoors. follow me on twitter at @scottshigeoka
