GDI Spotlight: Interview with Em Bowen
When you aren’t working hard for KPI, what are your favorite ways to find joy?
I have come to love spending time in my body and intellect as a major source of joy. Favorite ways to find joy include but are not limited to: running, weight-lifting, learning new movement skills, and playing in general. Joy catches me by surprise often–most often in moments of trying new things, reading/writing/learning, visiting new places, or whenever I’m feeling grateful.
