Pride and the Student

I watched this tonight from my Budapest hotel, and I was stunned.

The speaker, Aisha Ahmad, is one of the last students at McGill.  She has engaged in work outside of academia in ways that impress the hell out of me.  She has more guts, more passion, and more commitment than I could ever hope to have.  I take a great deal of pride in my students.  In this case, the stuff she talks about here, I have really no justification to be proud as I contributed very little to this side of her work.  But I will feel pride anyway because, well, simply because.
