非常诚实地说, stepping into this position has been wonderful, 但也让我大吃一惊. It feels like only yesterday that I was attending 类 on campus and spending free periods hanging out on the gym deck so it feels strange to be coming back to the School now in an entirely new role.
It turns out that I’ve been away from College Prep much longer than it feels—20 years, in fact. That (sobering) realization has prompted me to reflect on all the amazing things the School has given me and how my experiences at College Prep have changed the entire course of my life. Some of my best friends are people that I first met at College Prep, and many of the skills the School helped me develop (such as public speaking through 辩论) are still serving me well in my career as a lawyer.
所以我在这里, hoping to give something back to the place that has given me so much and to connect (or reconnect) with all of you. 与此同时, please reach out if you’re interested in getting updates or engaging with College Prep. I can personally attest that it’s a fulfilling experience.

The College Prep 阀杆 program continues to immerse talented Sophomores and Juniors in the many facets that make up the wider world of 阀杆 research. A cornerstone of the program is the summer internship, a four to eight week hands on placement in Labs, 学术单位, and both for- and non-profit entities across the bay area. We are continually looking for the assistance of College Prep alumni, 澳门葡京官方平台, and their networks to help us find placements for the 阀杆 学生, and indeed the many other College Prep 学生 who possess a deep interest in 阀杆 research.
