Aoki has been very vocal about social issues and never holds her tongue about hard to discuss topics. She told PEOPLE magazine following her graduation, “I feel grateful, proud and relieved — in that order! It’s a surreal feeling to be done with something that was such a huge part of my life. Now, like every other graduate, I’m on to the next chapter. I’m so thankful for the village of people that spurred me along and helped keep me focused. My mom, my sister, my little brothers back at home. It took a whole tribe, trust me!”
Congratulations Aoki, we salute you!
