Vivian Deng and Victor Tsui plan to put an end to a three-year long engagement with a wedding at the United Services Recreation Club in Hong Kong in December. Both are currently working in private equity, in Hong Kong and Shanghai, respectively—Victor spends his free weekends drinking whisky and playing poker with Frank Wang ’14 and Henry-Paul Xu. Congratulations!
Priya Krishna reports that Kate Taylor is becoming one of the top voices on fast food as a senior retail reporter for Business Insider (her article on unicorn fraps was featured on Colbert). Lauren Vespoli is working for Ink Global and she recently wrote a cover story for Hemispheres on Allison Williams, the star of Girls.
Yuan “June” Shangguan writes in, “We have a very tight-knit Dartmouth group in Seattle and we are getting more and more active together. A few months back we had a ‘Thinking and Drinking’ wine and beer and presentation event in Vipul Kakkad’s place and many Dartmouth alumni showed up! Personally, I bought a small house in the Greenlake neighborhood and adopted a dog named Dory. I am looking forward to friends and families visiting!”
Owen Peter Scannell will be moving back up to Hanover in the fall to start business school at the Tuck.
Maan Singh Tinna is moving on up in the theater industry. He started as a contracts administrator at 321 Theatrical Management, working on Wicked (Broadway and second national tour), Fun Home (national tour), War Paint and the upcoming Broadway musical Spongebob Squarepants.
There are several Dartmouth alumni working at Major League Baseball, including Peter Kim, who works in the MLB international department and recently went to Seoul, South Korea, for the World Baseball Classic Tournament, along with Joyce Fu ’03 and Shane Weisberg ’16. All had a great time!
Vaidehi Mujumdar, a third-year medical student at Wake Forest School of Medicine, received the 2017 Excellence in Medicine Leadership Award from the American Medical Association Foundation. Vaidehi created a teen cancer prevention program focused on HPV vaccinations, cofounded Wake Forest’s Medical Students for Choice chapter and works as a freelance journalist. The AMA Foundation’s Excellence in Medicine Awards program recognizes physicians who exemplify the highest values of volunteerism, community engagement, leadership and dedication to the care of underserved populations. Congratulations, Vaidehi!
And finally, for a quick personal update: After a summer of traveling and spending time with family in Seattle, I am moving to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to begin a three-year master of business administration and master of public policy dual-degree program at the University of Michigan. If you ever find yourself in Michigan, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
