Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2010
Allie Miller: “If you’ve been following along on social media, you know I live and breathe artificial intelligence. I recently left IBM Watson to become Amazon’s U.S. head of A.I. business development, startups, and venture capital. If you’re launching a startup on Amazon Web Services, say hello! Also, I’m about to fly to Boston to see Jocelyn Krauss and Newport, Rhode Island, to see Luofei Deng get married!”
Nicole Ilonzo graduated from her general surgery residency in N.Y.C. on June 14 and will be starting a vascular surgery fellowship in July.
Samantha Haw:“I amonce again moving back across the country and will be at the University of Missouri (Columbia, Missouri) for a three-year veterinary residency and master’s program to become a large animal internal medicine specialist with a focus on livestock.”
Matt Mukerjee and Sophie Hood ’09 got married on a beautiful summer day in Tilden Park outside of Berkeley, California. This marks 12 years from when they first met on the advanced language study abroad in Japan.
Emma Nairn is leaving her job at Excel Academy Charter School in East Boston after seven great years. She plans to continue teaching fifth grade at Belmont Day School this fall. She just completed a cross-country road trip this summer with her boyfriend, Nash, but surprisingly didn’t visit any ’10s because they are all moving back to Boston! She’s looking forward to hanging with Jeff Spielberg, Jackie Shameklis, Shreoshi Majumdar, and Kyle Betts in Boston this fall!
John Young: “I graduated from Stanford with a Ph.D. in political science. To celebrate, I will be traveling in Europe this summer. I would love to meet up with any Dartmouth folks across the pond. Hit me up!”
Tim Calder moved from Beijing to Hong Kong in May to start a charity teaching squash and English to underprivileged kids. (Great to have another ’10 in Hong Kong!)
Jacky (de la Torre) Hart: “I’m now a librarian at the Library of Congress. My projects include rare 19th-century Hawaiian imprints, Canadian acquisitions, and digital collections.”
Finally, I wanted to share some news about the Dartmouth College Fund challenge this year. Some amazing alumni challenged the classes of 2000 to 2019 to reach 45-percent participation in the DCF by June 30. For each class that reached 45-percent participation, they committed to creating a $100,000 financial aid endowment in our class’ name.
Great news: Our class reached 45-percent (hooray!), which means that we (with the help of these awesome alums) are contributing to student scholarships at Dartmouth in perpetuity.
Big thanks to our DCF class agents who helped to drive the initiative.
