Today I had the privilege and pleasure to interview some remarkable and truly impressive future students for my alma mater (Northwestern University).

I was floored by these amazing students and the contributions they are already making to the world!

And I could not stop myself from injecting “sage advice” into the discussions ;) I encouraged them to be true to themselves, be kind to others, maintain perspective, and follow their passions fiercely. Best of all, they were listening and I could see the wheels turning…

I am looking forward to really good things from these future leaders!

Combined with lovely recent times with my nephew and nieces, they gave me extra cause to celebrate life!  :)

Photo note: Since I encouraged these outstanding students to stand out from the crowd and be true to themselves, this image really spoke to me! This is especially because Northwestern’s colors are purple and white… ;)
