NOTABLE QUOTES:

My mission now is to help you guys move through this high school journey with more excitement, fulfillment, clarity, passion.
The school that you choose needs to fit you very well and gives you the opportunity to maximize both who you are and who you think you want to be, and it gives you space to become someone who you might not even know you’re going to become.
They `{`coaches`}` intuit very well when students are just using it `{`sports`}` as an avenue to get ahead or to boost their chances of getting into the school.
On my recruiting visit, I just got to be me! I didn’t have to try to show off. I didn’t have to try to do something or be someone I wasn’t, and it matched up.
I think Princeton is a place where they really value making sure that everyone feels like they can belong and giving everyone those opportunities.
Princeton is the kind of place that will afford you TONS of opportunities to learn what you are passionate about.
Never sacrifice your soul.
It is far more important for you to learn who you truly are than it is for you to say, 'I went to such and such school.'
There’s such beauty in the world. Don’t miss it by chasing accomplishments.
