And then I made a mistake. And I said jokingly of course.
I was teaching 1504 at the time. I said jokingly, I will wear the shirt to class and laughed.
And here it is the shirt that I got.
And then there was another student of mine from 1504, Tory Martin, who was who run the organization at that time took over from Lindsay at Harvard.
And Tory Martin said, 'I'm gonna hold you to it.
And I laughed and then almost cried. What do you what do you mean hold me to it. I mean I was joking. She said,
look, you just talk to us about the importance of integrity.
which I did, I mean look here, integrity. It's even behind. I did. I said, that's right, I did. So what am I gonna go back on my word?'
That's one of my core values, integrity.
And then my whole childhood flashed before my eyes.
And I thought about something that Churchill said which was find opportunity in difficulty.
So I looked for the opportunity.
And here it was an opportunity handed to me in a pink shirt, to be more in touch with my feminine side.
So ladies and gentlemen. Spring fashion 2008.
