Yuro on Stanford
"When I was doing my college search I was talking to a lot of people and they told me that when I found the right college I would just know. I wasn’t really feeling that and then I came to Stanford and I knew. I had the gut feeling that this is where I was supposed to be. It ended up being my dream school. It is surreal sometimes how happy I am here. I am around so many people who are like me and I am always learning from people around me."
