Hey, ’16s! Hope your summer is going well!
Let’s get straight to updates.
In April Josh Tupler was selected to attend the Yenching Academy at Peking University, making him the third Dartmouth graduate to earn this honor. Since graduating Josh has been living in Canada on a Fulbright scholarship, conducting research on U.S. foreign policy. Josh looks forward to moving to Beijing to join George Wilson (who is on her second year of the program) to continue their studies of China.
Emma PeConga was awarded a Fulbright study-research grant to travel to Copenhagen to conduct research at the Danish Institute Against Torture, an organization that manages rehabilitation, research, international development work and advocacy against war crimes. Specifically, she will be investigating the efficacy of a cost-effective multi-symptom therapy for Syrian civil war refugees. Emma will also be taking relevant psychotherapy classes at the University of Copenhagen in the department of psychology with a concentration in trauma rehabilitation and working in contexts of conflict.
Evelyn Fernandez received a full ride to the University of New Mexico, where she will be pursing an M.A. in Hispanic linguistics in the fall.
Andrés G. Mejía Ramón has recently been selected a NASA Space Grant graduate fellow for the next year. His research as a fellow will expand on his archaeological research on urbanization, resource scarcity and political development in the pre-Hispanic Basin of Mexico to similar issues in contemporary Mexico City.
Anna Gabianelli moved to New York City this winter to work at a tech startup. Outside of work, she’s been running around Manhattan with the nonprofit Back on My Feet, with whom she’ll be taking on the N.Y.C. Marathon in November—if you’d like to donate to her fundraiser to support N.Y.C.’s homeless population, reach out to her over email for the info!
Thienan Dang, Lily Gordon, Luke Wallace, James Furnary, Nick Gutierrez, Clare Detrick-Yee and Jon Kubert got together in March to represent ’16s at Camp Granite. They spent most of the weekend meeting fellow young alumni and raising money for the Dartmouth College Fund, which resulted in 134 gifts from our class. Thank you everyone who contributed! Anyone who wants to become a ’16 class agent, please contact Thienan.
