Then the year is over, and her job is done. But the plants will keep growing, uncurling their stems, stretching their leaves outward and showing their faces to the sun.

UBC Valedictorian

I’m thrilled to announce that, after a lengthy selection and nomination process including an intensive interview, I was selected to be the convocation speaker at the University of British Columbia 2010 graduation! Thank you so very much to the students and faculty who became my supportive net over the years, especially to the Best Mentor in the World, Dr. Theresa Rogers. I couldn’t have gotten half as far without all your help (not to mention your wonderful friendship). I’ll close by saying, “Isn’t my hat hilarious?” That hat represents years of blood, sweat, and tears. I adore it!
