joel padgett

Your gifts support passionate curiosity.

Joel Padgett, a 2021 graduate pursuing Ph.D in geology at University of Calgary has this to say about the 365体育投注_365体育备用网址@ experience:

"I never thought that I’d be a certified SCUBA diver or recreational drone pilot, that I’d travel to Europe and the Caribbean. I never thought that I’d have a job that pays me to talk about writing, and I never thought I’d get to make music with some of the most incredible musicians I have ever met. And yet, in four short years, I did all that and so much more."
