"When I got into Harvard, I was in the middle of a show choir performance and happy-cried unintelligibly through my entire solo in "The Christmas Song." My closest friends brought me a celebration cake with Harvard wonderfully misspelled in red icing, and looking back on it now, I can't believe how quickly all the time since then has passed. It's amazing how quickly it all goes by when you love it so much. It's hard to say what it is about this place that makes it so special, but I think I'll miss the people most of all. Harvard has given me the four most beautiful years of my life so far, and though I'd be lying if I said it wasn't full of surprises, I am madly in love with the memories I made here. I'll miss it all so much."
