From Elizabeth Lew:
I would like to thank you and your family and Inspiration through Exploration for this wonderful opportunity. Thank you, as well, for your enormous patience with me and with Tulane. This trip was very important to me, especially as I took it directly after hurricane Katrina and during a really difficult period in my life. It helped me to understand a great deal about my environment and about perspective.
I hope that your foundation will continue to impact the lives of young writers as deeply as it impacted mine.
