Bridgid’s grandfather had been a blues singer and music used to echo throughout the house and make the ambience lovely and vibrant. As her parents were both in the medical field, there was the duality of medicine, service, and creativity at her home that had turned it into a unique place to grow up in.
- Bridgid has recalled that it was not just her home that was in a way an all-inclusive, open experiment of society, as diversity and open-mindedness had been the crux of her education as well as the culture at the time. The Berkeley schools were busy doing experimental teachings all the time. Bridgid has felt blessed to have been a part of that exploration as it had fueled her growth and resilience.

- If she could enjoy a private breakfast or lunch with anyone in the world, she would have chosen Michelle Obama, having always found her to be incredible and inspiring.
