"What I'll miss most about Harvard is the people. I know that's kind of cheesy, but it's true: the people I've met here are some of the most thoughtful, inquisitive, curious, talented, and hardworking people I know. That's not a blanket statement, and there are many exceptions on both sides, but I will miss being surrounded by my peers who are striving to attain excellence, deep thought, knowledge, and change in a wider variety of disciplines and fields than I thought possible. It inspires and motivates me, especially on days I feel lagging. I'll miss the community."
