I applaud the articulate, self-directed thinker this young woman appears to be. That she is able to stand up and denounce her experience of the system she has completed, seeing the pitfalls ahead of her while maintaining that she is “ a human being, a thinker, an adventurer” does not negate (should, in fact, only serve to emphasize) the reality that she is nonetheless a product of that system. We must keep our minds open, recognizing that perhaps it was the system which afforded her the opportunity to experience perspectives other than her own..or kept her from entrenchment within a narrow set of values lacking the diversity that makes for well-rounded, awakened individuals.
