Life Advice from an Editor-In-Chief

Ezra Klein

by Cami Pham

“Sometimes I think we can overestimate the advantages of being well-rounded against the advantages of being really passionate and really into something. If you can find something you really love, it is worth going as deep into that as you can because when you get out of college, I think a lot of what the world looks for, contrary to what you’re told, is not well-roundedness – it is a thing you’re particularly really good at and into more so than other people are.”
