I am interviewing multipotentialites all over the world, what moves them? How do they control their lives in a system that doesn't fit? This project is all about the non-visual connections we have with other people all over the world. Cross-culture, cross-religion, cross-age, cross-gender, cross-pigment, cross -believes. We give ourselves a label to explain to other people why we are as we are, so we fit into a model of understanding. This non-visual connection is so strong, so powerful, and with so much love. This project is to show how we can create peace and love because we understand each other and we feel connected.
Scott Mason and his view on people escaping "the box".
Scott’s life story is one of profound resilience, peserverence, and triumph against challenge. He was born in England but adopted by and raised as the son of a Midwestern civil servant and a factory worker. As a bookish biracial child raised by African-Americans in a conservative rural community, he never encountered others like him to look up to or act as mentors, And so he grew up playing with crawdads and turtles alone in a nearby creek, looking up at the moon from the backroads in wheat fields — knowing there had to be more.
Kids like Scott weren’t supposed to make something of themselves. And on his journey, he faced tremendous — almost overwhelming — odds, including physical violence and obstacles presented by those who did not believe that he could or should succeed. But thanks to a few inspiring teachers who believed in him, a lot of hard work, and a dash of luck, Scott eventually made it to New York City, where he graduated from Columbia Law School, and where he has lived ever since.
Scott’s history and triumphs against adversity led to unlikely and unexpected success as an attorney, government official, nonprofit executive, entrepreneur, and community leader in one of the toughest cities on earth. His journey has flown in the face of those who believed that individuals like him — working folks, people of color, and members of the LGBTQ+ community — could not and should not succeed, let alone lead. His ability to jump over barriers, consistently perform at the the highest levels across professional sectors, and repeatedly reinvent himself have given his message genuine authority and intellectual heft. And it has given him a zealot's passion for ensuring that others never lose the internal fuel that will rocket them to ultimate levels of personal satisfaction and achievement.
