  1. Hi Laura,
    What a very nice writeup, you are a very modest young lady, it was very obvious to me when we met the other day at my workshop that you were extremely smart and far more experienced in this automotive world than your modest personality and young good looks would have us all believe. You are an inspiration to all young people who strive for a technical career and I will mark you here and now as someone to watch for great things in the future.
    Keep it up and if there is anything we can do to help you, all you need do is ask.
    Best regards,

    Just to embarrass you, I remember you when you were 14 or 15yrs old going around the shows with your dad.
    I didn’t realize it was you until you had left. What a funny surprise!
