Square peg in a round hole
Do you know the feeling when things suddenly fall in place, and you have that ‘ahaa’ moment?
This is what happened to me in the last weeks.
In the marketing department, we are checking on a regular basis if we are sending out the right message to reach the future students. One of the things that all students at Team Academy have in common, is the reason why they signed up at Team Academy; they had the feeling that they did not fully fit in the system of School or work. They felt like a square peg in a round hole.
A couple of years ago I bought this painting:
The reason why I bought this painting a couple of years ago was because it spoke to me and meant so much to me! This is how I often felt. The odd one in the group, the maverick, the misfit, the round peg in a square hole.
And even though it might be very clear to you all, it only struck me today:
I am here at Team Academy at the right place, as a director creating a safe place for all the square pegs out there. As I do believe we need non-conformists in this world, we need people who think differently to discuss the status quo and to create a better world for all.
I am happy and proud to be a square peg, in an environment where other square pegs feel invited, welcome, and safe!
I am happy to be back!
