"​Right before I graduated, I was thinking a lot about how social barriers between communities at Penn were starting to dissolve as we were leaving. Instead of using differences to keep groups separate, the commonality of graduating — and the four years we just spent at the same school — brought people closer together. It’s kind of unbelievable how people would open up to each other so beautifully. I was meeting such cool people then that I wished I had met three and a half years ago, but time was running out and I wanted to do it more.That’s when the first idea for Tea With Strangers started. I thought five people would sign up. I really did not think anyone was going to sign up, because what’s the premise? It turns out, a lot of people were thinking what I was thinking. So I told everyone, from  8pm​ to 11pm every night, between the day the first website, “Let’s get tea!” launched and graduation, I would be sitting at the same cafe, and I’d host 6 people a night.  No one ever left until they kicked us out of the cafe. It never ended on time.I recreated it in the Bay Area. The difference here was the context of our lives. People here are, well, adults – living real lives. They were talking about being responsible for themselves, about fear, insecurity, pride, motivation, culture and family relationships — not family relationships like ‘I’m going to go home and see my family over winter break,’ family relationships like ‘I haven’t seen my family in a year and a half.’ Those kinds of family relationships.”​
