“It’s hard to imagine a way in which my HB education did not prepare me. When I got to Princeton, many of my peers had gone to very impressive schools all over the country and world and had gotten extremely good educations there. What made me different was my ability to see a particular reality/social fact, question it, imagine otherwise or how to improve it, find out what resources are around me (human or material) to help me change/improve it, and then the confidence to go ahead and try to do so. That was a priceless gift that certainly prepared me for life.” -- Amy Saltzman ‘01
