Excerpt from personal statement: 'Nothing taught me the worth of listening to mind, body and other people's needs as did running at Stanford. With patience has come the equally invaluable acquisition of perspective. Stanford's encouragement to pour myself into each of my several passions at the appropriate times has been one of the greatest gifts the school provided.'
