derful to be back for the royal wedding, a moment of national pride for England, and I was able to reunite with some of my friends there. WWM: With so many worthy causes to support, please share which philanthropies you have chosen to support and why. PE: Bridge Over Troubled Waters is an important organization to me. It provides life-changing services to help homeless and at-risk youth, such as medical care, substance-abuse serv- ices, GED courses, and career and college counseling. As a mother of teens, I am com- pelled to support kids who find themselves homeless through no fault of their own. No teen should be sleeping under the Zakim Bridge. I am pleased to help the organization with their annual fundraiser and serve as the master of ceremonies for their GED gradua- tion ceremony. It is a perfect example of what started as a small idea in the 1960's, and is now an essential resource in Boston. My husband and I also feel strongly about supporting the schools our family has been associated with: Boston College, Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart, The Roxbury Latin School, and St. John School in Wellesley. For years our family has loved being a part of 'Trees and Trimmings,' the annual St. John's Christmas fundraiser. WWM: Please share one wish for yourself. PE: My wish is to inherit the genes of my grandparents and of my dad to live a good long life. WWM: And, please share one wish for the world. PE: At the expense of sounding corny, I feel as if I am such a lucky person, and my wish is that everyone in the world could feel as loved and supported as I have felt my entire life. 68 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 4 an interview with paula ebben
