When we first met Thomas, our conversation progressed as many of our initial discussions do, until we got to the question, “Have you started thinking about colleges?” Thomas replied rather sheepishly, “Yes, my dream is to attend Stanford.” Not Stanford and three or two or even one other school. Just Stanford.

Thomas’s parents encourage their children to pursue their dreams with passion and then fully support their efforts. We asked Thomas why he dreamed of going to Stanford, and he replied, “Because I want to be an environmentalist and Stanford has one of the best programs in the country.”
