Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2014
Hello, ’14s! I hope you are enjoying the fall. This is my first fall in New Jersey, and while I am enjoying the season here, I must say, it just doesn’t compare to the beauty of the fall in Hanover. I miss the crispness of the air, the hot apple cider and donuts outside of Collis and seeing those gorgeous red trees on the south side of the Green. My nostalgia got me thinking; we’ve been out of school for a pretty decent bit of time—over three years! In the spirit of my reminiscing, I’d love to receive updates from you all about your lives of course, along with the things you find yourself still missing about the College. Anyway, I’m done going on and on; to the news!
Anna Bladey and Patrick Yukman are still hanging out in Chicago. Anna spent last year taking postbaccalaureate classes in math and statistics at the University of Chicago and has just started a master’s in data analytics there this fall. She spent the summer interning on the analytics team at a tech company. Patrick has switched jobs and is now working as a software developer at a proprietary financial trading firm. He’s also started a master’s in computer science part-time at the University of Chicago. This past June Anna and Patrick went to Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee and just so happened to set up camp right next to three other Dartmouth ’14s! They spent a fantastic week with Carinna Arvizo, Iris Yu and Ruosi Zhou.
Emily Jordan writes in, “Having just completed my 50th road race of the year, I am wrapping up my 2017 season. This was my first full season racing at the pro level (and only my second full season ever), and with a really flexible job I was fortunate enough to be able to travel and race all over the country against some of the best professional female cyclists. I am looking forward to a bit of down time, then gearing up for next season!”
Chelsea Estevez spent two life-changing years after graduation in Cairo, Egypt, conducting sustainable development work through the American University in Cairo and gaining fluency in Egyptian Arabic. Since returning to the United States she has been working at a nonprofit that leads in providing civic education to the New York City school system. She recently started her master’s at the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs this fall.
On July 18 Max Kingsley graduated from the U.S. Army officer candidate school at Fort Benning, Georgia. Second Lt. Kingsley received the Distinguished Honor Graduate Award as the top graduate in his class of 115 newly commissioned U.S. Army officers, as well as the Academic Achievement Award for the highest GPA in his class. Max is an infantry officer and will continue his training at Fort Benning.
Autumn White Eyes emailed in, “This past May I graduated with my master’s in education from Harvard’s graduate school of education, where I studied arts education. I am now the executive director of Lakota’s Children’s Enrichment Inc., a nonprofit doing youth work on my reservation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Feel free to contact me if you’d like to get involved or support! My email is email@example.com.”
After three years in New York Carly Emmer moved to San Francisco. She recently joined the team at Coinbase, an online platform for bitcoin and other digital cryptocurrency transactions, as a business operations associate.
Thank you to those of you who shared updates! Enjoy the holidays; I look forward to hearing more news (and memories!) in the new year.
