What does Stanford mean to you?
"Stanford is everything at this point in my life. It has given me the opportunity to pursue the best education in the world, to be a part of a team that has accomplished so much in the last couple of years and given me so many opportunities outside of that. I have met teachers who have won the Nobel Prize or interacted with students who are doing research to change the world. I see it as a really big door that has been opened and through it I have the opportunity to do anything.”
