"There's so many different things you can do at the University of Vermont, diversity is not necessarily focused on racial diversity, but it's also on what types of interests that you have, because there's so many different majors and so many types of things that people study here. I joke around with my friends that 20 years from now I'm going to run for president of the United States. So, we'll see how that goes...but it has to start from somewhere. Law school is all I've thought about for the last 14 years."
