Wow. Lots of things have happened in my life since I wrote my last blog post. Time flies..

Here are top 5 updates / accomplishments:

1. Graduated college finally! after 3 transfers with the highest honors

2. Became a management consultant (including a recent promotion!)

3. Moved to NYC / NJ

4. Paid off my student loan!!!

5. Visited different countries (Mexico, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, St. Lucia, Taiwan, and Canada)

6. Picked up new hobbies – golf and snowboarding!
