Starting Off

I'm fairly new to blogging, but I have the feeling this is going to be really fun. I get to try out my web design skills, too! :)

First of all, I feel so lucky to have been chosen to participate in the Ivy League Connection. I always thought of programs such as this as intangible; but now as we're starting to pick up the pace I'm almost overwhelmed by the very real, amazing potential of the next few months.

I'm looking forward so much to getting to know everybody, attending the actual class at Brown, and enjoying everything about the entire experience. I'd like to thank (in no particular order!) Don, Mr. Ramsey, Ms. Kronenberg, Ms. O'Brien, Mr. Crosby, and Ms. Larson for helping me get to this point, as well as everyone else who is working on the website.

Our informal meeting in March will be a fun step along the way to building a strong, close group. This is what will make our experience at Brown the best it can be.

I can't wait.

Something New

Hello everyone!

Blogging is something completely new to me, so hear it goes:

Well, it's really happening. As of today there is only less than five months until the great departure. Of course, none of this would have been possible without three of the most important people to the program, Don, Ms. Kronenberg, and Mr. Ramsey (in alphabetical order). I am definitely grateful for all their help and leadership. This program has really opened my eyes to the possibilities life really has to offer. It has opened many doors for me and shows what can come of, from hard work.

I am excited to see all my fellow student for an informal meeting at late March. I am sure that I am not the only one who is wonder what the others are like when we meet. This will be fun.

All of us are now knee deep in something far more than worthwhile and this program, and all who are affiliated with it, definitely deserves nothing short of the best we have to offer.

"And Away We Go!"

Hello Everyone!

I would also like to thank our ILC advisors again for this amazing opportunity they have placed in our hands. We couldn't have done it without you all. You guys are the best! This trip will definitely stay with us for the rest of our lives and we are all very grateful for that.

On a another note, I would like to thank all Brownies for their cooperation in the organizing of our March dinner. It is great way to get to know each other before our official dinner in April. I am looking forward to meeting everyone that will be with us over the summer. I really hope to see you all there!

Lastly, I just wanted to mention that I am very excited and anxious for this trip. We still have a couple months to go, but I can hardly wait! Before you know it, we will be boarding our plane to Rhode Island, headed for the experience of a lifetime.

Keep blogging,

The Beginning!


Thank you to those who took part in setting up Brown's blog. I would like to thank Madeline Kronenberg, Charles Ramsey, and Don Gosney for all their efforts and contributions in expanding and flourishing the Ivy League Connection.

Already, the ILC has shown me a magnitude of greatness and success. From dedicated advisors to hard working students, I am highly impressed by the entire team's cooperation and efficiency. Keep in mind that this is only the beginning of a once in a lifetime journey- I can not wait to see what is in store for us.

As a reminder, our first Brown(ies) gathering will be on March 27 at Happy Sashimi located in Pinole.

Thanks everyone for your support.
