Global poverty and homelessness are issues of immense magnitude. How can one person make any difference? Carolyn Scott speaks about how building houses helped uncover her passion for creating safe homes and strong communities, and how you don't have to be an expert in construction to change people's lives.
Carolyn Scott has always had a passion for imagining, designing and building. As such, she is drawn to math and science, but also to the arts, and loves exploring the places where they overlap. In her talk, she will explore how the physical aspects of construction and design intersect with society and family. When she's not dreaming up her next creative project, Carolyn likes performing onstage as a singer and actor in chorus and drama productions. She is a member of the cross country and track teams, and enjoys drinking tea and reading everything from novels to newspapers in her spare time.
