Yesterday I was waiting at my School for some paperwork to come through, and decided to borrow a book from the library and sit on the School lawn outside. As I was engrossed in reading about municipal bonds, this barely 16-year old girl in shorts runs to me and says "Can I take your picture please?"

Me: "Sure, but why do you want my picture?"

She: "I love Columbia. Maybe one day I'll be sitting here reading some book".


She vanished as fast as she'd come - the whole conversation was like 20 seconds. I was so touched and inspired by her. At 16, she is chasing her dreams and with what passion! Ah, the power of inspiration. May she get what she wants!
