We hope against hope. We continue to hope even when there are no visible signs. We recognize the darkness and apparent hopelessness of the present situation and put all our trust in God. Then, gradually, as our eyes adjust to the darkness of despair, we begin to see the emerging shapes or outlines of God’s great and mysterious work – the finger of God, as Jesus called it. These are the paradoxical signs of the time that only become visible once we believe that God is at work in our world, once we learn to look at life with an attitude of hopefulness. What matters in the long run, though, is not only that we are hopeful but that we act hopefully. The most valuable contribution that a Christian can make in our age of despair is to continue, because of our faith, to act hopefully and in that way to be an encouragement to those who have lost all hope.

My mentors and advisors have been helpful in managing my success. Last summer I did scientific research in Boston for the Novartis Scientific Summer Scholar Program. They select top-tier students from around the world, and I was one of the lucky people selected.
