“What remain a through line in each and every project-and any world that I occupy-is that I want there to be a greater purpose. That purpose may be as simple as providing joy or it may be helping in the field of equity or amplifying other people’s voices. But my metric for success is having an impact on something greater than myself.” -Glamour
