My Decision to Postpone EC Year

This summer I decided to take a year-long leave of absence from HBS. My motivations are simple: time and opportunity. It started during a conversation I had with Grace [Choi (OI)] about 6 months ago when she told me that HBS professors and alumni were much more willing to help students than other alumni, and…

My Summer in Kabul

Can you even call Afghanistan an “emerging market”? Hopefully, eventually, it will emerge. As I reflect on my summer internship with Roshan, Afghanistan’s leading telecommunications operator, one thing clearly stands out: I learned more in the 10 weeks in Kabul than I did in the three years working prior to HBS.  If you’re considering an internship…

Matchmaking

After the unfriendly response from the DateHarvardSq folks, I decided to pause and reflect on my purpose as a columnist.

The HBS-SA CUP

“My Section is the best. From the moment RCs are integrated into their HBS section, it’s the phrase that is most said and heard through the hallways of Aldrich. For those ECs who have moved out of the confining life of a Required Curriculum, it’s the one only agreed upon by those lucky enough to…

Welcome RCs!

As I sit down to write this piece for the Harbus, I can’t help but remember my first few days at the HBS campus. HBS can be a scary place for a new student and also being new to the country can definitely add to that apprehension. The exhilaration of having made it to one…

Emerging from the Bubble

Last weekend I went skiing in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, with 450 of my closest friends.
