I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.
— Albert Schweitzer

I consider nearly everything I do as service; whether it’s building a new masters’ program in design, introducing students to distant parts of the world, or encouraging young immigrants to pursue their dreams, it’s all service. I feel that in service I not only help others but greatly enrich my own journey. 

The majority of my service is through empowering people to speak for themselves. My work in this area crosses many traditional boundaries and can be reflected as service to my school, university, and community.
