So there’s going to be a thing in your life that you love and I don’t know what it’s going to be.  It might be sports.  It might be science.  It might be reading.  It might be fashion design, it might be building things.  It might be telling stories or taking pictures.  It doesn’t matter what it is.  The way you love that and the way that you find other people who love it the way you do is what makes being a nerd awesome….
Don’t ever let anybody tell you that that thing that you love is a thing that you can’t love.  Don’t ever let anyone tell you you can’t love that, that’s for boys.  You have to love this because you’re a girl.  You find the things that you love and you love them the most that you can.  And listen, this is really important, I want you to be honest, honorable, kind.  I want you to work hard because everything worth doing is hard.  And I want you to be awesome.  And I’m going to do my very best to leave you a planet that you can still live on.  Have a great life.
