8:40 am -- After grabbing a cappuccino for the road, my friends and I leave the dining hall to go to Sudler Hall, where the morning lectures are. Today we are hearing from Jake Sullivan, who has served as national security advisor to Vice President Biden and deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among other incredible achievements. He teaches us about foreign policy and tells us stories of negotiating ceasefires and being stuck in a tiny room with many countries’ leaders during a snowstorm. A large group of us stay after the lecture to ask him questions.
