"I was lucky enough to get accepted into the grad program at Yale. I've never seen so many talented people in one room who were above and beyond way more talented than I was. That was the driving force that really pushed me to excel. When you're surrounded by people like that, you think, 'I can do that; I can do more. Let's see how far this can go.'" - from refinery29.com, Jan. 29, 2015
