QUOTE • JESSICA LEHRMAN

What did you learn about humanity in India and what do you think you gained from that experience?

"The biggest thing was perspective. As Americans we have the perspective that if other people aren't living like we're living, then they're wrong and they need help. In reality, when I was in India - in the slums - the middle of nowhere, living in the fuckin' jungle, people were eight million times happier than anyone I know in New York. It's when Americans go in there and try to change things, that's when shit gets fucked up. The community there is just so much deeper than anything we could ever have."
