Researchers will understand that:
Carey Ann Hunt lives with her 10-year old son, Aden, in Hudson, New York. She grew up in Copake, NY in a Camphill home with her family (parents and siblings) and Camphill residents. Camphill has been an ongoing presence in her life, influencing her views on difference and on accepting others.
Carey Ann discusses her on-and-off approach to travel and study, having graduated three years ago with a degree in art education. She has traveled extensively and discusses her experiences in Europe, traveling with little money across the United States, posturing as homeless as a “social experiment” and some of the challenges of traveling as a young woman alone or with other young women.
She has traveled less since her son's birth and now works as a gardener in Hudson. She discusses the role and importance of older women in her life, including her mother and grandmother. She is interested in forming a business with other women and engaging in social justice work by exposing youth to nature. She is aligned with the Staley B Keith organization in Hudson and hopes that Hudson can become a place in which more people interact openly with each other.
