UW-Madison School of Social Work Graduation 2017 ~ Madison, WI Photographer

"The two most important days of your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why" 

- Mark Twain

For a few years I covered the UW-Madison School of Social Work graduation....then took a 2 year hiatus because of new job experiments and babies being born.

This year, I made my return.

I love this assignment. I feel a bit of a kinship with the Social Work folks, obviously. I started my college career way back in 199....something or other....wanting to help people. Wanting to CHANGE the world. Wanting to work with those who needed a voice....a hand....options.
I moved from Criminal Justice to Sociology and set out to work with the geriatric population.

Then I started Type A.

Even though I realized that, at the end of the day, I wasn't meant to be a social worker....I totally understand the call. I get that you go into social work not for the income (believe me....), but for the outcome.

Congrats to all of the new MSW students! The full gallery will be ready soon, but in the meantime enjoy this little storytelling sneak peek!
