Quotations and aphorisms by Dina Powell:
I’d worked in the state senate in college and seen how important legal decisions were. And at the last minute, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison said, ‘Why don’t you come do an internship?’ That turned into almost 15 years in the government, in the White House, and at the State Department.
My parents wanted their daughters to reach their full potential. I joke that they said, ‘We left our homeland so you could pursue your dreams - as long as you’re a lawyer, a doctor, or an engineer.’
