He plans to pursue a master's degree in social work. He has lived in a wide range of communities from Washington state to even Europe. In the past, Ethan has worked as a PCA for a few years. His passion is organizing and growing grassroots movements. He hopes to work with children with special needs as a career in social work.

The reason I applied to the University of Minnesota is that during the April GA, I had plans to move back to Washington or Arizona. And I asked Mike how hard it would be to finance going to school and he said I should give it a shot. And up until that point I hadn’t considered it. So I applied and got in. and I figured that since I built up a connection with LeadMN through Platform Committee and networking I figured I might try and apply for an internship position while I am attending school and moved so far south. To be around people I’m somewhat familiar with.

I really like a mix of everything. We live once so why not experience as much as we can. I try to go into things with an open mind and I’ll usually try something 2 or 3 times before i decide I don’t like it.
