Three Thoughts:
If I could have dinner with anyone dead or alive I would choose... Aretha Franklin because she was a powerful musician who raised awareness of racial injustice during the Civil Rights Movement; George Takei because he is an inspirational Japanese-American actor/director who continues to raise awareness about many LGBTQ issues; Martha Argerich because she is truly a brilliant pianist.

A BDS student is someone who... tries hard, cares about others, and has integrity.

Three words that describe my work style... inclusive, clear and efficient.
