I was blown away by the intelligence, confidence, and character of these young women. They are going to do amazing things in their lives. Many speak English as a second language. Most are underrepresented minorities in our top schools. But unlike some of the kids I encounter in my personal life, they can stand up, look you in the eye, and speak eloquently about why they are doing this and what it means to them. I love seeing that kind of thing.
