Meredith Vieira cites her parents choice of an all-girls school for her education as one of the top five decisions that changed her life: "My parents putting me in a single-sex school had a great impact on who I am. ... suddenly I had a sisterhood that I never would have had otherwise, and an incredible bond was formed. ... We were encouraged to be loud in class, debate was a good thing, and all of it made me feel like the strongest person in the world."
