My mom is telling me, ‘you haven’t even finished your PhD, you have an 18 month old daughter, life is too crazy.’ It’s not crazy, you just don’t see what I see. And the more you tell me that I can’t do it, the more I feel like I have to go do it, because if I’m not the one to do it, and I see someone else do it, I won’t be able to live with myself. — Ann Miura-Ko
