What sparks joy for Amisha today:
"A re-love of healthy eating! Feeling that I’m really nourishing myself."
Final words of wisdom:
"Don’t let anyone tell you there’s anything you can’t do, the more people I talk to and the more stories I hear, the more I realize that a lot of the limitations that we face are our own, but we really can find our courage and we really can find beauty in the world.”

“When we connect to our hearts and minds, and what unites us, our innate goodness and beauty, we find so much possibility, so much opportunity. This is the revolution.”
“I had become very academic, and I had become very hands on, volunteering but I wasn’t making things for myself anymore. I wasn’t doing things that were a pure expression of who I was.”
“It’s been messy along the way. The process of finding courage and the process of using trauma and tragedy to grow and give is not an easy one.”
“Most of us just want a world where we can feel safe where our children can thrive and where we have resources. That’s our common thread.”
“I think that we have to take one bit at a time and to not feel that we have to take it on all at once or that all of it is our responsibility.”
