“Caitlyn did an amazing job talking to the audience. Sometimes speakers feel like they don’t notice the audience, but she was talking directly to the community in the room: college students, some of whom are going through challenges of their own. She was real, candid and just the right amount of serious. Also, she hung out at the reception until we had to shut down the venue, which was so amazing to see from someone of her status. She spoke to students from the LGBT community and asked them how she could help. It was inspiring”
