Beyond the College Match meetings, you have taught me how to lead a life with responsibility and awareness. You are truly an extraordinary man and without you many of us would not be in the place we are now. You have opened a small window of opportunity that has transformed into so much more and bigger than that. So I thank you for that and for the time you have invested in my personal and academic growth."
