At the women’s event in New York, Mckinsey and Company’s New York Office Director Liz Hilton Siegel urged us to give ourselves the time and space, while in business school, to imagine our impact on the world.

Today marks two months since I left New Haven for what my friend jokingly refers to as “the best coast,” and I have to admit that I’ve never felt more at home than I have here.

Yale SOM's Nooglers So… I have a confession to make. Ever since I was 11, I’ve dreamt about living in California.

Sakura (cherry blossoms) in Caulkins Courtyard. Not actually Japan, but we were there a little too early to see a great number of cherry blossoms. Sorry ‘bout that. Photo by Dennis’ iPhone. Here is the much-delayed follow-up to my first post on Japan, Frames, Trains, and Automobiles. I really wanted to get this to all of you right after our International Experience ended, but, alas, the craziness that is the first week of Spring 2 put a hitch in that plan...
