“You can do anything with an anthropology degree. And that is not in any way meant to cheapen the nature of the degree. But what it teaches you is to look for the underlying systems and patterns of connectivity. And with that you can create great foundations for working with groups.”

Mentioned in this talk: 
Sokanu Anthropologist 
Anthropology in Practice 
The Culture of Coffee

The True Calling Series is a weekly video interview with extraordinary people who have found work they feel they were born to do. Have a look into their world and find out where they got started, lessons learned, and what their work is really like.
