"As a graduate of a small liberal arts college, I connect deeply and personally with Swarthmore's mission of educating the best and brightest young people while helping them develop a strong sense of ethical and social concern. I feel like I’ve been welcomed home. I'm inspired by the intelligent, fiercely passionate students who for four years call Swarthmore their home. I believe they will be—in fact, already are—a force for good in their communities and the world. In my work as a writer, I feel privileged to be a small part of this force by sharing, with alumni and parents, the amazing, transformational experiences students have here."
