Over the last year, he led the College’s Philosophy for Kids program, which is designed to introduce philosophical concepts to children at an early age. That work inspired him to pursue a job in education.
“The dynamic we had in that program set the blueprint for what I want for the students at Christchurch, for them to have a safe space to be themselves,” said Pausic, who majored in philosophy.
“I went into the major wanting to answer some of the big questions I had. I came out with even more questions, a sharper mind, and a better understanding of my place in the world,” he said. “Studying philosophy made me understand the weight of the decisions I make and forced me to grapple with what it means to live a good life. In many ways, what I learned in school and my path in life grew very close together, which has been a special thing to experience.”
