My Medium of Choice
Hi! I’m new here. To Medium, I mean, not to the internet (though my internet wherewithal might make you think otherwise — queue ’Today’s Top Hits’ on Spotify and Google Search for ‘Best Way to Organize Email’).
As you likely already know (because who else will be reading this other than my supportive parents, my favorite sister and the nicest of friends), I am currently at business school at the NYU Stern School of Business. The class I most looked forward to each week (which also happens to be the class I most dread because for all its merits, cold-calling still makes me recoil in terror) is that with the infamous Scott Galloway, who is guiding me and 267 of my peers through the ins and outs of Brand Strategy. As part of the assigned work, Scott has tasked me with building my own brand and developing my unique voice in the world, all before semester-end.
I have a lot of learning, thinking, living and building to do before I know exactly what it is I want to say to the world. When I do, look out, because I’ll be asking for your undivided attention. For now, I’ve decided to take the assignment in a slightly different direction…
Through a combination of a ton of luck, a lifetime of effort on behalf of my grandparents and then my parents, and a sprinkle of burning curiosity from me — I find myself in rooms and now on Zooms with some of the most incredible and influential people on planet earth. Their voices, experiences and ideas are molding, moving and motivating my own beyond measure. I want to use this Medium channel to share these same voices, experiences and ideas with you.
Knowledge is power. Ideas are currency. Shared experience is conversation. At least, all of that is true of the world in which I want to live. Let this Medium page be a platform for that world — where you can expect to see takeaways from our most inspiring leaders, ideas from our greatest innovators, and every day advice to help us all be better for each other and for the planet we are lucky enough to call our home.
I hope you enjoy!
