I care what people who know me think of me.
People ask me if I ever see my father and I say yes, because he puts in the effort. He calls all the time to tell us he's proud of us.
I'm just not political. I have opinions, but there's nothing about the process that has ever interested me. I'm 22, and this is the first interview I've ever done in my life.
I'm sure there were times when I wish I had thought, 'Gosh, that might really embarrass mom and dad,' but our parents didn't raise us to think about them. They're very selfless and they wanted us to have as normal of a college life as possible. So really, we didn't think of any repercussions.
As a teacher you can see the difference in kids who have parents who were involved. That difference, by the time these kids get to the third grade, is drastic.
Luckily I've had a lot of great friends that I've had for a long time.
I decided to go to Latin America because many of my students in Washington emigrated from this region and inspired me to learn more about their home countries.
It's not like he called me up and asked me. They've never wanted to throw us into that world, and I think our decision probably shocked them. But I love my dad, and I think I'd regret it if I didn't do this.
One day I would love to have a couple children.
I don't think of myself as a policy expert. I think education is the most important thing.
I hope to focus on what I'm passionate about because I think I'd do them best job on them - education, urban education, women and children's issues and literacy.
I didn't go to Latin America thinking, 'I'm gonna write a book. This is what I'm gonna do.' I went there to work for UNICEF and to learn.
I hope to work with kids any way possible.
Our parents have always encouraged us to be independent and dream big.
You have to give kids things they're interested in reading. That's what teachers do who are engaged in what their students want.
