‘Why I turned down Silicon Valley for Washington, DC’

The Next Web

It’s thought that US student debt is more than the rest of the world combined. With $1.2 trillion outstanding, its impact on lifetime earnings – and career choices – can’t be overstated. Who can afford to launch their own startup when Uncle Sam knocks down the door each month? This dilemma is a catch-22; only the well-off can attend college debt-free, yet the gap between college and high school grads is growing. In 2012, Abigail Seldin set out to solve this problem.

Gregg Fraley

Hope is inspired by successful projects; the lesson of Washington at Trenton. There’s a lot to learn about inspiring hope from American history, but before we look at that George Washington “crossing the Delaware” example, let’s examine what mindset means, and let’s see what is systematically left out (hint: it’s hope).
