Your talk was phenomenal. I’ve been doing this for 37 years. This was at the top. Many students from yesterday’s class came up to me today to let me know that they loved your talk and that you were their favorite speaker this semester. Thanks again for coming to Berkeley and energizing my class the way you did.

Your AASC presentation was incredibly inspiring...and moving. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place; I know it evoked emotions from a very deep place within my soul. What you are doing is beyond amazing.
