Svend, CfY Student
Through this program, I’ve learned that you can only begin to understand someone’s perspective when they actually share it with you and that it is foolish to extend judgment onto another person without adequate knowledge of that perspective. This reservation of judgment will absolutely have practical applications, as too often most people write off their fellows as unintelligent or mean-spirited when in fact they might possess all the kindness or genius of anyone else around them. Simply, I’ve learned to refrain from reading a book by its cover.
If I could describe my experience with CfY in one word, it would be “revealing”. Especially in the first year, CfY made me privy to a section of my personality I was not aware of.
