Hi, y’all. This month’s notes are short and sweet, much like the holiday break I enjoyed while writing them up. With the summer months approaching, write to us with your breaking news, summer plans adventurous or languorous and memories of 10X past.
First, our usual roundup of Dartmouth kids in love: Jasper Hicks and Carrie Ryder tied the knot back in September, in case you missed it. And over the winter break Katie Gonzalez and Doug Nelson ’10 got engaged out west. Congratulations, all!
While his days on Burnham Field may be in the past, Lucky Mkosana’s success continues as a forward for the New York Cosmos, a team in the North American Soccer League. He’s now expanding his impact by developing Bridging Youth through Soccer Academy in his Zimbabwe hometown. The academy’s goal is to help youth develop their skills and gain the kind of exposure that can lead to scholarships and other valuable opportunities while also providing a mentorship program. (Read more about him on page 55.) Daraiha Greene, head of computer science in media multicultural strategy at Google, was recently profiled in The Root for her work developing the CS+X program, which introduces a diverse set of students to careers in computer science and coding by showing how the field intersects with more approachable passions such as music, fashion and dance. Can’t wait to see what’s up her sleeves next.
In other boss lady news, Alix Peabody recently launched her brand, the Alixir Co., to “bring together and empower millennial women.” Be on the lookout for Bev, a canned California rosé, this spring! Cheers to our classmates near and far doing cool things and leaving a Big Green impact on the world. Email and snail mail below—don’t forget to share the love when you’ve got news to announce!
