The Yale Daily News asked Marina to write an essay to be distributed at her commencementThat essay is going viral today.  She noted that most in her class are “somewhat lost in this sea of liberal arts.  Not quite sure what road we’re on and whether we should have taken it.”  But their lack of clarity is not a problem: “We’re so young.  We’re so young.  We’re twenty-two years old.  We have so much time.”
