A Year of Yes: I got into the Biomimicry Program at Arizona State University

I am beyond ecstatic to share the news that I was accepted into the Masters of Science in Biomimicry at Arizona State University. And the circumstances in which I learned the news have given me so much hope.

Friday was a difficult day for me. As I sat in my meditation trying to restore some peace in my heart, the phrase “send some magic” kept coming into my mind. I finished my meditation and did some work on my monthly newsletter. Then I logged into my email, and saw that magic had found me in the form of my acceptance letter to ASU. I have been touching base with ASU for the past few months, and learned a few weeks ago that they received an overwhelming number of applications. Because of that, I had been preparing myself to not get into the program.

Friends, after years and years of wishing, I’m going to be a scientist. I’m going to learn from nature how to build a better world for all of us, one that is sustainable and values all beings. I can’t wait to get started on January 7th. The program is entirely online so I can stay right here in my beloved New York City. It’s also purposely designed for working professionals and must be done part-time so I’ll keep my job as well.

Curious about biomimicry? Check out Biomimcry 3.8 to read some inspiring case studies of nature at work.
