I had an amazing time at Catalyst. But it’s not really a story. There were some great presentations, and amazing people. I really enjoyed meeting so many folks working in different ways towards the goal of a more sex-positive world!
I even managed to hand out a handful of business cards. Which was always exciting and fun.
And the conversations were incredibly interesting! Some great insights and experiences shared.
But, to what my prior post was about: Figuring out some direction.
I’ve got really two at this point: non-professional adult education or going for a Masters in Public Health.
The former was a direction I had been considering all along. But the MPH was inspired by some fantastic talks and discussions with folks working in that field. It’s something I had never considered before. I figured oh, maybe social work or some other form of direct therapy. But, I’m a VERY political person and after seeing the talk (first one of the con, mind you) How to be a Sex Positive Warrior in Public Health, I was floored.
Shout out to Kaitlyn Scalisi, Maria Quinn, and Rick Aguilar for putting on this panel!
I really am considering going this route. While it’s the more challenging one, I feel like getting into public health to help try and turn the ship, not just arrange a cabin, could be the best use of my energy and interest. I still don’t know a ton about what’s involved in the degree, but between those fabulous presenters and some friends I know that are working on their MPH’s right now, I will be investigating further!
