One of Four Hundred

400 students make Harvard history

so say the Harvard Gazette headline, and I thought to myself: "Pretty awesome to be one of 400."

My participation in this historic event has given me immense pleasure and great honor. I will treasure the friendships that blossomed and the conversations that sparked inspiration on that memorable autumn weekend.

The possibilities of making a positive impact in our society, and feeling within reach the dreams and opportunities to change ourselves and the world for the better — these things I will not take for granted.
