I have been very close to Education for many years, and now that practicing it as a profession is most probably in the past, I feel a lingering regret. Children are the humans with the most awe; to foster that with encouragement is one of the most rewarding experiences, no matter how brief.

I can’t imagine anything more worthy than a program that brings encouragement to more children around the world. This was a great talk.
