Jules Porter: Digital Diversity and Super-Powered Senior Citizens
22 May 2020
Anyone who has played a video game in the last 10 years has undoubtedly come across a skill tree. Using the experience gathered along a journey, players can pump up their character with various specialties, creating a cascading branchwork of perks that make each step forward a bit easier or, at the very least, a bit more interesting.
Jules Porter’s skill tree is one to note.
Instead of spending all of her skill points on a single path, Porter decided to diversify by getting an aeronautics degree, a theology degree from her time in seminary, a dual J.D./M.B.A. degree, and some decidedly sharp coding skills. She was also in the United States Marine Corps.
