“You can’t really change yourself from an introvert to an extrovert. But I was just sort of going out there to see what I can learn from one year of doing these things that I normally run away from.” (18:55)

“Reaching out and saying hello and inviting people into our homes, it really can be lifechanging.” (24:27)

“I’m an introvert, I like being alone. But I like being alone on my own terms.” (33:12)
