It is very difficult to explain to someone what being in Berkeley was like. The frenetic energy, the passion to reach beyond yourself to make a difference in the world, the constant demanding pace to be better. But also the quiet moments walking across a wooden bridge surrounded by redwood trees on the way to class. The delighted cry of your name ringing across the courtyard. The complete silence of an 90 minute lecture conducted via PowerPoint to demonstrate the power of the written word.
These are some of the faces who have made my 3.5 years at Cal one of the most fulfilling years of my life. Thank you for the hugs, the long talks, the sleepless nights, the midnight snacks, the tapping of yet another PowerPoint deck being made. You guys have inspired me to push myself harder and be a better version of myself. I cannot wait to see what amazing things the Class of 2013 is going to achieve. Forever a Cal Bear :)
