Nicole Gibran '77 Director, UW Medicine Regional Burn Center, Harborview Medical Center, Seattle

As a fourth-year medical student at Boston University, Nicole Gibran '77 wanted to challenge herself. She sought out the most difficult rotation she could find and ending up spending a month in an L.A. burn unit. One patient was a 17 year-old girl who, erroneously thinking she was pregnant, set herself on fire. Nicole's mentor sat at the end of the girl's bed, reading her the Bible.

Lacey Rose '06 Press Secretary, Senator Elizabeth Warren

During her eight years at Winsor, Lacey Rose '06 learned the importance of community, and the magnitude of the democratic process. "My group of friends consisted of a Catholic, a Muslim, a Jew, an atheist, and me, a Protestant," she says. "We used to sit around at lunch talking about what the world would be like if everyone grew up like we did, overlapping our views and concerns with open and empathetic minds. And our class was notorious for voting. We'd vote on how to vote, why to vote, whether to revote; we functioned like the Senate, but fortunately with more women."

Tiffany Warren '92 Senior Vice President, Chief Diversity Officer, Omnicom Group

She had joined ALAI , a group for African-American, Latina, Asian, and Indian students, and soon after she assumed charge of the group's communications, the epiphany struck. "I knew that's what I wanted to do," she realized. "It was, 'You be in charge of strategy; I'm going to get the word out!'"

Ariadne Daskalakis '87 Violinist and Professor, Hochscule für Musik und Tanz Cologne

History may have been different had her mother chosen ballet shoes or a tennis racquet. As the story goes, when Ariadne Daskalakis '87 was 5 years old and clearly a smart, curious kid, her mother thought she needed an outlet. The violin was chosen because of a conversation about the importance of music during an ice cream with a friend and her friends—one of whom happened to be YoYo Ma. Suffice it to say, Ariadne took to the violin like YoYo Ma has taken to the cello.
