On co-founding Haiti's first free High School:

On getting philanthropic advice from Bill Gates:
“I just had a great conversation with Bill Gates, he said, ‘No, invest your time in Haiti and know your subject well.’ ”
On her "Big Trip":
“Cité Soleil in 2009. I had never seen poverty like that. But Haiti is also so beautiful—it’s important to remember that it’s not just about tragedy.”
