See video

Smith, Shahid, and McKean, BIF alumni, reflect on the evolution of their work in the time since their last BIF visit.  For McKean, this means further developing the dictionary website Wordnik, currently the largest semantic resource in the world.  For Shahid, this means furthering her non-profit work, including mentoring Malala Yousafzai, who went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize.  And for Maya, it includes  working towards improved youth mental health at the Born This Way Foundation.  The three women explore their past work, their present, and their hopes for the future.
