Excerpts: 

“You can read volumes and volumes of books but if you don’t have that kind of story of a person … if you don’t experience things in more than one dimension, it’s not going to be real.” 

“The more people there are, the more diverse views there are, the more diverse creativity there is, and it’s really that diversity that we want to encourage and celebrate.”
