For the past three years, since 2014, Lydian has been going to college for her associate’s degree. Since she was homeschooled and she tested high on her entrance exam, a local community college admitted her to work on her studies at the age of 14. Originally, she worked as a non-degree seeking student until she was old enough to declare a degree. In May of 2017, at age 17, she graduated with her associate’s degree, but having traveled the world over the past 8 years of her life, she’s reluctant to go back to school for a Bachelor’s degree. Both her parents, John and Jennifer, work online as digital nomads. Jennifer has a master’s degree in psychology, but she never uses it to find work. John is entirely self-taught and doesn’t have a degree. So Lydian questions the validity of going back to school and devoting more of her life to school. Currently, she works online giving guitar lessons.
