Dear Sara, thanks for keeping us updated and well-informed over the last years, I have grown so used to your name in my inbox!
  Good luck on your new path and remember: you can take a woman out of the feminist movement, but you can never take the feminist out of the woman.
  I bet you will make wonderful buildings in which the design of toilets and kitchens makes as much sense as the design of the office spaces..
  warm greetings, Maggie
