I hope you all had a wonderful winter holiday. I think I can speak for most of us that it was a much needed and rejuvenating time! Not only was I able to spend time with my family and cousins over the holiday, but I got the opportunity to catch up with old friends. It is quite interesting to see where everyone will end up after this final year of college. Some friends are entering industry while others are pursuing advanced degrees. Whichever the case may be, I grew to appreciate the network I have been able to develop and am thankful for each and every one of them.
Shortly after New Years, I went with my family to Monterey and Carmel to relax along the coast and whale watch. We seemed to time it perfectly because there were so many whales along the coast throughout our time there. While I was shopping around Carmel, I wandered into a watch shop and got to talking with the store manager. Turns out her son ALSO goes to USC and is an engineer. There was an immediate connection and made me realize that as Trojans, we always look out for one another.
Returning to USC, I have felt inspired to continue the projects I have invested in as well as looking to form new connections and new endeavors. This semester I look to shape the direction and future of USC’s professional Entrepreneurship Fraternity (Sigma Eta Pi) by working with the members in developing companies and products. Stay tuned for the updates!
