One of the most inspiring parts has been meeting all of you and getting to know your stories. I am excited to spend time with you in the coming months!
Most importantly, I want to thank you for your generous support, which allows me to make the most of this experience, and grow both profesionally and personally. I look forward to another 7 exciting months with you.
On a Personal Note
Not everything has gone as planned in the first three months of my Fellowship. Like many in the North Bay, my flatmates and I were affected by the enormous wildfires. I want to thank Mike and Birgit Wood for their great support during these difficult times. When things were quieter around Santa Rosa, weekends would include hiking in Sugarloaf park, swimming in the Russian river, or discovering San Francisco on bike. During the long weekend of Veterans day we were even able to make our way down to Santa Cruz, Monterey and Carmel. I can’t wait for what is to come!
In my role as president of the San Francisco Alumni Chapter of the University of St. Gallen, I have had the pleasure to organize a get-together and meet the Alumni in the Bay Area. In addition, I am very excited for the HSG Alumni USA Conference in New York next spring.
