“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Who knows where my career will take me? I only know it will begin in marketing, keep me passionate, and encompass creativity. And that I am not willing to sacrifice family time to go the distance.

Who knows what kind of social impact I will have? I only know I am determined to have one, it will involve children, and that I will forever draw inspiration from a classmate with ALS. His body weakens by the day yet his heart has raised millions for the cause.

Who knows who I will marry? I assume it will be the man I have spent the last four years loving. I do know that these two years have deepened my appreciation for the calm spirit he brings to my feisty soul. And that I still want to hold hands when I'm eighty!

Who knows how I will find time to do everything? What I do know is that I will make time to dance. To choreograph. To perform. For fitness. For fun. And for the cultural connection it provides me.

Who knows what impact HBS will have on my life? I only know that this school has changed me. That I make it a point to remember I am blessed to be here. That my parents, who immigrated to the U.S. with only eight dollars, dedicated their lives to enabling me to have all of this. And that I will do the same for my children.

Who knows? I only know that in these two years I have learned to embrace uncertainty.
