Because we live in Brookline, I had the joy of getting to know my daughter's Wellesley friends and watching them as they grew up at Wellesley and developed a sense of self-confidence and possibility. They are now in their 30's and well down the road of creating their personal lives and careers, and it is enormously gratifying to witness how their unique bond and sense of purpose have supported and inspired each of them to pursue her passion while encouraging each other to do the same.
