Flying High

This week, I received a couple notifications that brought me back to my MBA days. QS emailed me to let me know that they are providing access to over $1.2 million in scholarships. In order to qualify, applicants must register and attend a QS event, and then complete this survey. I hope this is helpful for anyone who is eligible!

Also, I was notified by HEC Montreal that my graduate student testimony and message had been posted. You can read the testimonial that I co-wrote with our AEMBA President Jean-Nicolas Denis at this page.

Although I am often trying to attend as many local events as I can, I've had to cut back so that I don't experience burnout. However, I did make it to the Santa Monica New Tech Meetup and the 3rd SiliconBeachLA Weekly Unwind at the Hotel Shangri-La. At the SM New Tech Meetup, we learned about seven new startups:, Fanappz, Saveastranger, ReadingKingdom, InternSushi, ChalkTips, and Birdsai. Interestingly, during the networking period afterwards, people kept approaching me asking if I was InternSushi's CEO Shara Senderoff (see photo below). As for the SiliconBeachLA Unwind, I am really enjoying these and looking forward to them each week!

I am also excited to share that I took a flight over downtown Los Angeles last night, thanks to my friend who smoothly piloted the trip. The view was absolutely stunning!
