The Philadelphia Chapter for the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) hosted a lecture by economist Dr. William Dunkelberg on “How will this Election impact Policy Financial Markets and Growth?” at Bryn Mawr College on Tuesday November 29. The event was not affiliated with the college, so I had not known that the event was happening. A friend of mine has an aunt who organizes AAII events and invited me to come along. Economics is not really my specialty, but I was interested in the subject and thought it would be worthwhile to learn more about finances.
I spent my final Thanksgiving break of my undergraduate career with friends and family in my hometown Ridgewood, NJ. Thanksgiving is the final mini break before finals and the end of the fall semester, so I gladly took my rest and ate my good food in good company. Here’s the super concise debriefing of my short break: Continue reading
Last Tuesday November 22, I got the chance to catch up with my good friend Amanda (BMC’16) who is a current grad student at University of Pennsylvania’s Urban Spatial Analytics masters program. Although Amanda was a cities major at Bryn Mawr and I am a physics major, we managed to share one 20th century Eastern European history course together last fall semester. We also knew each other through working on the Bryn Mawr Concert Series board. We grabbed dinner at Ochatto near Penn’s campus, and I listened to her candid opinions on life after Bryn Mawr.
This weekend, I performed in my last Fall Student Dance Concert (FSDC) of my undergraduate career. Although I was only in one dance piece, the night was memorable and I will miss being a part of such an inclusive dance community. The best part about FSDC is the variety and depth of talent in the Bi-Co student choreography and dancing. Independent choreographers and dance clubs always bring their all for a packed audience in Marshall Auditorium. I performed in a Choom Boom K-Pop G-Friend medley of Navillera and Rough.

On Friday November 18, I ventured out to Philly for the Asian Mosaic Fund and Asian American Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) gathering. Friends of mine I knew from volunteering in the Philly Asian American community invited me. Although the crowded was a little older, I think it was good to introduce myself to a different crowd of involved Asian Americans. Continue reading
In a rare series of events, I have managed to eat at Wyndham for lunch 2 times in 1 week! Make that 2 times in 2 days! Thanks to LILAC for their stellar lineup of successful women in the working force, I had the opportunity to eat lunch with Dr. Natalie Gosnell on Thursday November 17 and Allison Schill (BMC ’99) on Friday November 18. Dr. Gosnell is an observational astrophysicist and visiting assistant professor at Colarodo College. Schill is the Regional Brand Director at Enbrel, Pfizer Latin America. Continue reading

On Tuesday November 15, the Health Professions Advisors hosted a panel on women in medical research. The panel featured 3 women at different stages of their medical careers who spoke to students about pathways into medical research, trends among women in the field, and advice on balancing professional and personal lives.
The Theater Program of Bryn Mawr and Haverford College’s Fall production of Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl opened this weekend. The story is a modern adaptation of the classic Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice told from Eurydice’s perspective. Students are involved in every aspect of bringing the production to life, from the acting, to assisting in lighting and set design, to collaborating with the theater faculty directors. I had the chance to watch the play on opening night, and I highly recommend going to see it for yourself during one of the remaining shows November 17-19.
On Wednesday November 9th, the Bryn Mawr College chapter of Liberty in North Korea screened the Jubilee Project documentary film “Save My Seoul” on sex trafficking in South Korea.

Director of the film Jason Lee, who graduated from the University or Pennsylvania, was also present for a Q & A at the end of the film. Students from Bryn Mawr, Villanova, Drexel, and UPenn attended the event. Continue reading
