It doesn’t matter how rich or poor you are: when you’re sick, you want the exact same thing.

One of the things is, I don’t read my own press. I never watch myself.

When Amazon emerged, people had these debates about whether people would put their credit cards online.
Anne Wojcicki

When I graduated from college in 1996 and the Internet was taking off, I remember this feeling that there was an open range where anything could be built.

There are a lot of people in D.C. who have never been on Twitter or Facebook and don’t get what’s happening.
Anne Wojcicki

As a child, I had a teacher who told me, ‘Look, Anne, one person can’t make a difference.’
Anne Wojcicki

We care a lot more about not having the disease than treating it.
Anne Wojcicki

Most important about what Ashoka is doing is that they make people believe that change is possible. That belief can go viral.
Anne Wojcicki

I have deep respect for Rep. Jackie Speier and all that she has done to open doors for women everywhere.

Incorporating genetics into a platform with the reach of ResearchKit will accelerate insights into illness and disease even further.
Anne Wojcicki

It’s one of the things I want people to understand about science… You don’t have to be the best person in the world at it. But you can be good, and there are so many different opportunities in science.
Anne Wojcicki

There’s clearly things you can do in your environment to try to prevent disease, and I want to know what those things are.
Anne Wojcicki

Being the first FDA-authorized direct-to-consumer genetic test out there is revolutionary.

Being in Silicon Valley makes me strict when it comes to my children’s technology use. I am surrounded by it all day, so I try to avoid it when I get home. I set screen-time limits, because I think it’s good to diversify activities.
Anne Wojcicki

I tried to minimize exposure to technology before two. After that, I’ve taught the kids to use devices in moderation. It’s important for them to learn how to control their behaviour themselves. Simply restricting access makes them want it more.
Anne Wojcicki

It’s very important that children learn to use technology – it’s part of life – but also that they learn when to put it down.
Anne Wojcicki

I do let the kids play on devices when we eat out – it’s better than being thrown out of a restaurant.
Anne Wojcicki

I really like raw connections, and so I’ve always had a harder time in politics because I feel there’s a lot of veneer around everything.

If health care is a $2.7 trillion industry, and a huge percentage is paid by the government, then you have to be involved in politics to make a difference.
Anne Wojcicki

When I was young, I ate Ho Hos every day.

My perfect weekend is going for a walk with my family in the park. I don’t think there’s anything better.
Anne Wojcicki

I did a lot of fun things before I had kids – I traveled a lot. Now, I just really love being with my kids.
Anne Wojcicki

Once a week, I might stay late at work. It’s sometimes very efficient to work until 7 P.M. – and then come home to kids who are clean and ready for bed. Those days are good.
