“The Hilltop is still buzzing about your lecture! I have received emails and phone calls about what an amazing person you are and what an outstanding lecture you gave. When the boys gave you a standing ovation and then rushed up to shake your hand or say hello to you, it was an educator’s dream come true! They were really paying attention and completely amazed by your story. I am sure they all went back to their dorm rooms to plot their next big adventure! You motivated them .. you inspired them .. you connected with them.” …Julie, Salisbury School, CT, 2015
