In the middle of the desert, I find myself with a few great friends who let me be myself. I am also reminded of the truly great friends I have in other cities, friends I desperately miss. Girlfriends are essential to being a girl. What does this have to do with getting my PhD? ... Everything. Without my girlfriends, I am not whole. Thanks to those friends who get me, who accept me for whom I am, and who encourage me to be more. Cheers to you!

His courage, woven through his tales of adventure and dangerous liaisons, is inspiring. He has gone where most people would never dare, in order to help all of humanity. Girls in these counties receive little to no education. They are relegated to domestic duties and horrors that most women in industrialized nations will never know. I admire Mr. Mortenson's dedication to education for girls. His writing is a reminder that equality is still a dream - but must become a reality.
