Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2019
I hope that you’re having a nice spring/early summer! Let’s just get into the class updates!
For this issue of Class Notes, I asked classmates to share what they’ve been reading.
Jonathan Lu had a book recommendation for the class and shared what he’s been up to in the past few weeks, stating, “It’s been almost a year since I relocated to Florida to work from home. While it’s been an adjustment not to be in New York, I’ve really appreciated the time I’ve been able to spend connecting with family. I started reading a new book, Grit by Angela Duckworth (highly recommend), and am also learning how to cook. I think the pandemic lockdown has put a lot of things on hold (traveling, weekend hangouts, meeting new people), but at the same time it’s also been an opportunity to focus on other aspects of life (spending time with family, catching up with friends via Zoom, and of course watching our favorite Netflix series)!” Thanks for the book recommendation, Jon!
Next we have some more general updates to share!
Sarah Kennedy wrote that she, Priscilla Salovaara, and Wendell Beane were able to reunite for the first time since graduation this November, which was a huge highlight. Huge shoutout to Wendell for finally moving out of his parents’ house! Priscilla has been baking up a storm and recently made a 10-layer cake!
Another shoutout to Freddie Polak, who just received his second dose of the Covid vaccine after moving to California to start as the transmissions platoon commander for the Marine Corps 9th Communications Battalion. He also recently went vegan!
Sarah also said that it was really great to reconnect virtually with Audrey Scott, who joined Sarah’s team at work! Sarah has really enjoyed the late nights catching up over Zoom.
A huge congratulations to Raina Lopez, who will begin dental school at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine this fall.
Finally, a huge congratulations to Nikita Swinnen-Galbraith and Tucker Lancaster ’18, who got engaged earlier this year!
Thank you to everyone who shared! As always, if you have any Class Notes to share, please send them to email@example.com, reach out on the class Instagram, or contact me directly.
