“My education was more about pushing my own strengths than connecting with others. I became a tech guy, into machines rather than humans. Later, I realized it was nice to be with other people. It
helped me understand them more.
When you stopped me, I was just coming back from volunteering, looking around and smiling because I was happy to have met that many people today. I’m glad we talked, sometimes we smile to someone
on the street, then we wonder if it could have been a nice encounter.”
