Having a career, travelling the world and being independent were what really mattered according to her.

Rebecca Walker, daughter of the famed feminist and author Alice Walker who is probably best known for her book The Color Purple.

Eric Mazur, a professor and pioneer for a learning model that advocates directed conversation in the classroom between students, debate, dialogue, and active listening, and he sees higher levels of success and engagement as a result.
