"Sameer…Thank you…such a pleasure to meet you and have you participate in the evolution of our youth. As I reflect on the day’s events, I am reminded of the words of one of my teachers, Miriam Dior. Her work is guided by the simple principle of “spirit, take me to where I am needed.” I believe that your work is about this in the purest sense. I am inspired by your compassion, passion, conviction, and authenticity embodied in your work and being. I appreciate your seeming fearlessness about the subject matter regardless of your audience. Our work (U32′s) is to evolve from this day of information and move forward in a meaningful way. I hope that we can continue this journey with the same optimism that you emulate. Our work, in my being, is always for the current and future generations."
