"I will always be grateful for the professors whose insights changed the way I interact with the world, for my friends who inspired and awed me with their talents, passions, and kindness, and for this university that challenged and pushed me with continuous encouragement. Four years at Harvard have been transformational far beyond what I could have imagined when I first walked through its gates. As I leave this spring, I carry with me cherished memories and a piece of what makes this place so special: the constant desire to learn, explore, understand, and engage."
