    I spoke to a crowd of students about growing up in the housing projects of the Bronx. I described how my thirst for knowledge about my own culture, even from a very young age, shaped the decisions I made and ultimately allowed me to take classes at Cornell and take advantage of opportunities to study abroad in Spain and Africa. I stressed to the assembled students the importance of believing in one's own ability to accomplish anything, and to not let financial or social obstacles stand in the way.
