Stanford Summer has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life. It taught me to think boldly, dream big, and achieve what I set out to achieve. I still remember the orientation speech of Jimmy, when he said something along the lines of, from that day, we [the students] ascended to the awesomeness of Stanford. And it’s not possible to come down from there: that we will believe in us and do great things in the future. I have made friends in the Summer Session that will last a lifetime, for sure. These friendships, connections, discussions, and cultural diversity–all these–made me a better human, well-rounded to individuals with ambitious desires to change the world. Inspiring me to believe in me and the fact that I am capable of doing anything I want is what Summer Session at Stanford taught me.
Lastly, I want to thank the Summer Session team for helping us get such an awesome experience during Summer 2015. You guys are the best.
