In December last year, I was asked to write a letter to a gifted young woman as part of ’21 letters’ to celebrate her 21st birthday. When I sat down to write a blog on Celebrating Giftedness, I knew that I wanted to share a quote from that letter.
“You were the first person that I ever fought for and I did it because you gave me the strength to. And it changed my life.”
She was one of many amazing (or sometimes interesting) students that I have had the privilege of knowing. And every one of them has influenced my life.
