I'm leaving on a jetplane... My summer with United Way International is done. Almost. Perhaps the best part is just about to begin. They are sending me to Seoul, South Korea to attend the Asia-Pacific Regional Conference, and I fly out tomorrow! I am excited for both personal and professional reasons! But what did I do for the rest of the summer? I need to figure out how to say what I did in just a few sentences!

For me, I headed to Orlando after that: We are lucky to enjoy TWO full weeks of spring break.

They say time flies when you're having fun, but I still can't believe its almost March! My name is Kendra and I am a first year MBA student. I grew up in Rhode Island and then lived in Boston for 7-8 years before coming to New Haven, so I guess that makes me a true New Englander! My background is in education, so business school has definitely been a new and exciting experience for me. Aside from learning all about balance sheets and cash flow statements, its been a great year for so many other reasons.
