“When I think about how I learned at Swarthmore, what comes to mind is problem solving in all contexts. ... It comes down to a sense of being willing to take risks and a resilience when things fail, and coming out of that process with a real sense of optimism that with enough effort and enough creativity and conversations, you can do anything. That was really my take-home lesson from Swarthmore.”
