Georgette, During your presentation, your message about racial stereotypes and unyeilding determination showed me a more optimistic side of life. From your presentaiton, I realize that instead of proving to others, I should be proving to myself. You have inspired me to change my perspective about others and myself. You have also inspired me to be more optimistic about my life and future. Thank you.
