FC: Harvard Business School MBA Class of 2009, Section A

2: Alfonso Diaz | How could we forget Alfonso's ability to befriend any bouncer at Rumor and smuggle everyone into the club pronto? x Kirsten | Best cold-call dodging of the RC year, obviously on a Friday morning! Paris | Cholo! Seguro te dan el Rumor Scholar Award por tu persistente y constante participacin en Rumor! Pablo | Alfonso rocks the party that rocks the party. Jordan B | Cholo! Thanks for immortalizing all of our section memories in digital form. So when is the next Vargas Llosa running for Presidency of his country? Stay in touch! Marc | Skydeck Neighbor, Rumor King, Fonsie, El Cholo, Puma Fanatic .. I know you by many names and love them all. I look forward to spending time together in Peru, Singapore, New York or whichever part of the world it may be! Shilpa | Thanks for organizing the great Peru trip in RC year. I will never forget bbq at the beach outside of Lima! Wouter | Will never forget that outstanding meal in LIMA with those Ceviche shots! Thanks a ton. Rahul | The best New Year Eve party ever... go Asia!!! (31.12.07, Peru coastline) Ben | Bailando o filosofando sobre la vida. Siempre te tendre en a mi corazon. Beso fuerte. Sara | I never forget when I met you at the learning team in pre-MBA. You are the first person who I interacted with at school!! Hide | It was an exciting day when I looked across the room and realized that I had known Alfonso Diaz... el Cholo... for 13 years already. He is still the same wonderful person he was at that Peruvian high school! Shannah | Wait, what's a Cholo? Blake | You can still be Peru's first Formula One driver! Anuroop | The best pisco tour in Peru! Shweta | So wanna call Tatiana for a table in Rumor or should I call Heather? ;p Teebs | We'll always have Rumor. Steve

3: Amant Dewan | I'll never forget the email you sent me after the Saudi case! You said you were lucky to have me in the section but in reality, I am the lucky one! Teebs | Amant: pushing everyone a little futher than they might have otherwise gone. Jordan | Class was always entertaining sitting next to you - at least when you showed up! :) Mia | One of my most memorable comments at HBS was from Amant: "hmm....I still agree with me..." Joey | Amant, sorry for eating all your ice-cream. Let me know when you come again to Greece, assuming you can settle for something less luxurious than what you are accustomed to :) (great bachelor party by the way, too bad you were not there!) Paris | Thank you for inviting me dinner together with you and Gayatri in India. That night was the greatest night in India!! Hide | Hope your 15min at 300 words/sec comments will bring joy to your employers! Pablo | Amant and Gayatri, you guys give us hope that you can still be fun and outgoing after getting married. Better get ready to show off your favorite city, Mr and Mrs New York! Shilpa | No one but Amant can respond to a simple question with the most convoluted answer, and still make total sense. Wouter | Definitively the best connected guy in the section. Especially in the porn industry. Paolo | Indian Gordon Gecko and I mean that in the best possible way! Michael N | Hey Tito Jr., it was nice representing the workers with you against those cost-cutting managers. Way to stick it to 'em! More seriously, it was great having you in class. Best of luck with your whatever's next and let's stay in touch! Marc | I'm glad to have grown closer & closer to Gayatri & you. The small group dinners were the only reason to look forward to Sunday nights. Will miss you and hope we will stay in touch. Pato | Thanks for your fascinating speeches in class -- it was always worth waiting to see who would become more incensed: you or Vietor! x Kirsten | Amant, I've never met someone who made me so much smarter, while leaving me so confused! Thank you for all of the great memories! Steve | Your arguments in favor of inequality make all Republicans proud. Blake | You always inspire me with your passion for understanding businesses and having fun! Our secrets will be our secrets! Anuroop | Remember, if you want to complain about diamond rings or number of shoes, do give me a call! Sara | You don't talk often, but when you talk, YOU TALK! Danish | I got to know you more in the 2nd semester as your seatmate. I enjoyed sitting beside you. I will never forget you drew that “MBA” boy picture on my cup, going to your engagement party, having dinner at your place and in Grill, etc. We lived for our moments, for the present. I cherish your friendship. Our journey will go on. I hope you will be optimistic as you always are and enjoy every bit of your life with your family. Sandra

4: Anders Havneraas | Mr. Anderson, do we have a judgement yet? Rahul | I couldn't have asked for a better neighbor. Mornings just aren't the same without being asked, "Are you excited?" Elizabeth | It's a good thing that you have interesting things to say, because you are without a doubt the loudest whisperer in the history of mankind. Eric | I never forget your role play in LCA! Hide | I hope you'll have one more chance to say "When I worked at Exxon" in your career. Pablo | Although sitting next to you in Supply Chain drove me up the wall and the prospect of working with you later next year makes me want to jump out the window, I have learnt to live with it and even enjoy your company every now and then. Hope you find more people to imitate and more things to draw so that you can continue to keep me entertained. Shilpa | Here come the Vikings! Wouter | One of the dirtiest minds in the section (see Wouter) Paolo | Anders, someday you'll have to help me understand how the F&*K you Norwegians manage to have BOTH a functioning economy and high levels of social protection... Have fun in Asia and stay in touch! Marc | Who could forget your legendary acting performance in LCA? x Kirsten | And I still believe you should start a career in "impersonations". The Austrian Girls. Christine | On the first day of school, your "feedback" to Tim Butler that the mandatory career session was less than helpful was priceless. Your early stand made it clear we had a strong guy on the A-Team! Blake | I hope you'll have one more chance to say "When I worked at Exxon" in your career. Pablo | One day, we will organize our "brown & grey" party! Anuroop | Michael Cera is your long lost twin! Caroline | To my car-mate and seatmate in our first section retreat, thanks for feeding me muffin. It was delicious. Sandra

5: Ann Christensen | Now how old did you say you were when Frankie and you learned to s*** (hint: its a southern dance)! Rahul | Ann is awesome. Jordan | Will always remember your random cold calls in PE Finance. Alfonso | It was great for you to participate in Japan Trip! Also I was very happy to study right next to you in EVCHC class. Hide | May all the sports-teams in Boston win for your joy! Pablo | Ann, love your stories and I'm looking forward to more of them but all safe and with happy endings:-) Love you, Nataliya | Ann, I'm no fan of the Blue Devils or the Red Sox but after observing your fervor I guess I'd have to root for them just for you. It was great sharing the RC year and I look forward to reading your updates over the years ahead - you're one of the funniest writers out there! Marc | Thanks for sharing the great Ben & Jerry's Winter Festival expedition during the section retreat in Vermont! x Kirsten | It was great to serenade you in Japan... Blake | Miss Ann - I've really enjoyed the great stories of all your adventures. Here's to racking up plenty of new ones! James | I am almost a SOX fan now thanks to you!! Anuroop | I like the balance you gave to the class. Loved to hear your comments. Sara | Greatest chugger of orange soda, ever. Tina

6: ROOPA! Rahul | Do you remember Zip car accident when we went to a Japanese restaurant? That was a funny moment. Hide | Cheers to all our Cycling, Power Abs, sitting on bridges and Starbucks chats! Joey | Hope these two years here finally made you learn the lesson. When an opportunity presents itself - grab it! (-) The White Lemo Crew Ben | Next hike- Killimanjaro! Shweta | I hope you'll remember when to play X or Y!! Pablo | One of the dirtiest minds in the section... if he only could get the jokes (see Danish) Paolo | Anuroop - if I multiply 8 by 100 do I get: a) 8 b) 8,000,000,000 c) 55 The right answer gets a free visit to me and Sarah in Paris anytime you wish! Take care buddy :) Marc | Your carrot munching will forever be in my right ear. Michael N | It was such an unforgettable experience to ski together during our last section retreat in Killington. I really enjoyed the peace and excitement while skiing in between the mountains together. The ski journey has had an end, but our life journey will still go on. I hope you will enjoy every minute of your life going on as we did during the ski trip. Sandra | As in... Anuroop you are, hands down, the most upbeat person I've ever met. Look forward to great things in life! Steve | As in...I don't know what to say? Blake | Anuroop is the healthiest eater I know. I can attest to the fact that he consumed more baby carrots first semester than a roomful of bunny rabbits. Shannah | How you managed to get CLPN to dress up as a carrot we will never quite know! x Kirsten | Great party style. Smooth and elegant! Sara | Hopefully next time Goldman is pitching business to me and you are on the other end, let me know ahead of time! Danish | Anuroop Sreekumar

7: Art McGill | Anuroop Sreekumar | I hope by the time you read this, you would've already taken me to the Plough and Stars!! Teebs | Art will conquer the world, one beer label at a time. Jordan | Jager anyone? ;) Mia | I would listen to you over Elvis Mitchell any day of the week. Possible career for you?? Thayer | Art, you will remain my first ever FRC AND FIN1 tutor... Joey | To my favorite QB - You didn't just help me get through the finance final, you made studying enjoyable. Aaron Sorkin is the man. Elizabeth | I never forget summer of 2008 in Dubai. It was so hot but the beer I drank with you was great and playng darts was so fun!! Hide | May all the beer find your way! Pablo | Hey Art, I can't say I've met many American ballers who ALSO happen to be well read in French lit... It was fun sharing the classroom, the court and the field with you! Let's make sure to have our pre and post reunion events at Petsie Pie's and at the Plough and Stars! Marc | Thank you for bringing the Plough & Stars into our HBS lives -- I'll never forget the celebrations there on the last day of RC classes! x Kirsten | The next Oracle of Omaha. Blake | I love that you didn't notice that I had an earring in my right ear until retreat. You'll always be Art to my left. Tina

8: Ben Ellencweig | We're the hope of peace in this world! I'm gonna miss you both to PIECES!!! Teebs | Ben and Dani - You both have become such dear friends to me, especially this last year. I'm going to miss spending time with you, but will definitely be down to visit you in NY! Mia | At the end of the day... I think you may still be a spy. Eric | I remember going to Harvard Square with you before the official MBA started. Also, it was fun collaborating wth you in LEAD mid-term exam. Hide | Who doesn't know Ben - to the most popular guy at HBS. Pablo | I will miss all those nights you planned when we went out drinking (wink!@) Rahul | Thank you for such an amazing trip to Israel. It is one that I won't forget. Michael N | Most fun-loving spook I have met! Wouter | Ben, you and Dani are so much fun to be around and I am sure we will continue to keep in touch way beyond our year together in New York. Shilpa | Big brother, you and Dani have a special place in my heart. I'm really glad for having been your neighbor for a semester. Who will give me advice on guys now?? :-) xx Pato | Ben - all my best wishes to you and Dani for the future. It was great getting to know you and I hope we stay in close touch! PS - Thanks for introducing us to Ory Zik, he is a very cool and inspiring CEO indeed - just like you predicted! Marc | When Itzhak and Ben started negotiating in Hebrew, it was clear their opponents BATNA was getting a beat down... Blake | If you want the beads, you know what to do ... Danish | The White Limo and its constituents shall forever remain elusive man!!! Anuroop | Definitely the most mysterious section mate -- but those consulting firms loved the "blacked out" resume! x Kirsten | The boy among the girls, great listener, great thoughts! Sara | AT THE END OF THE DAY, I think Ben is one of the sweetest, most caring, most perceptive sectionmates we had! He always brightened my day. Shannah | Hope next time we see after the MBA is in Israel! Alfonso

9: It's not a good idea to steal people's shoes and hide them... Thayer | A few more meals at Super-88 and you will officially be Asian. Rahul | Hey Blake, it was fun hanging out with you these past few years. Keep it real in Chicago and thanks for keeping Thayer and Phil on their toes for the rest of us :) Marc | Amazing memories over the past 2 years. Bryan B. | Wanna play the shoulder game? Teebs | Would have conquered Europe, if only Napoleon hadn't beaten him to it. Wouter | I was happy to share the moment in Japan. You were so funny at Karaoke and I am amazed by your "Linda Linda". Hide | Old Chinese proverb: "Golfing with union leaders might take you to the White House?" Pablo | Here's to all our constant chats about how Omegas are for gents and Rolexes are for... Joey | My dear row-mate, I got away without putting up the Texas Flag! Sara | Blake, you will one day be able to beat me at Formula One! :-) I will never forget "I need to pee like a racehorse" outside Rumour!

Tina | Money Bags, you're the best treasurer ever! Caroline | Blake Slansky | Shortest and coolest yearbook comments. Alfonso

10: Wanna shot? or two? or maybe 25??? Teeba | Will miss your dance moves Mr. P! Mia | You're on your way to becoming an Iron Man. Thayer | I'd never imagined we would be in a same section when I got email from you before school started. It was fun we went to Chinatown together! Hide | In spite of your considerably weakened performance the second year, I am confident that you will always be there to have a shot or two with your friends when work gets too stressful. Keep it up! Shilpa | Most unlikely German ever... Wouter | Warm greetings!:-) Nataliya | Boney, Herr Poovan, it was a pleasure sharing this HBS experience with you. I wish I'd gotten to know you even better outside the classroom (I've got that arm-swinging video of you at Rumor stuck in my head) but we've got life ahead of us for that to happen! Congrats on your engagement my friend - stay in touch. Marc | Thanks for making us all laugh when you turned around in the front row and had a cat nap while the professor had his back to you x Kirsten | What should I say ... dancing, shots, party, ... I will miss it!!!! Christine | Knowing you, I will never dance without my hands in the air again. Blake | Our secrets shall remain our secrets! Remember Redline? :-) Looking forward to South America! Anuroop | I like the way you party, tough to keep away from shots. Sara | I had my first deep talk with YOU during our first section drink. I really enjoyed it. Our talk reminded me of some of my past experiences and feelings that I had. Meanwhile, it also opened a new chapter of my life in our section, at HBS. Thanks for sharing the journey together. Sandra | Go Bo-nay, just 15 more shots! Danish | Boney Poovan | Thanks for talking me into going to octoberfest, I had an amazing time!!! Parties would not have been the same without you :) xx Pato

11: Brian Musto | Flag football would not have been the same without your intensity. Keep your pencil spinning and your hair shaggy. Elizabeth | Great memories over the past two years. Bryan B. | Every time I talk with you, I cannot help laughing. Thank you for conveying funny moments all the time. Hide | Musto's success in life proves that nice guys DO NOT finish last, but they do get injured every time they step on the basketball court. Eric | By far the most passionate person I know, in terms of love for Atlantic City. Joey | Every morning you ate a packet of Cheerios with two small containers of milk -- thanks for making the rest of us feel unhealthy ;) x Kirsten | Greg Paulus would have made a better... just kidding, look forward to intense basketball debates Steve | Hey Brian, it was fun sharing the RC experience with you! I often found the stuff you said in class very insightful - especially when you started your comments by saying "Hey... I don't know..." :). Anyway, hope you keep up the b-ball and that we can play again soon! Marc | I never want to go out to eat with you and Vince again. You two are like food soul mates. Danish | Go HOYAS! And New Jersey! And HOYAS from New Jersey! Musto is just so proud to be who he is. :-) Shannah | Your ability to hold a one liter beer stein to your face with no hands is an inspiration to us all... Blake

Joey | Congratulations on your engagement and wish you both all the best Shilpa | I hope you will have a chance to visit Tokyo office of your firm in the near future. Hide | I want to build to Gitomer's comment .... Danish | Bryan Gitomer is funnier than everyone in Section A, hands down. Jordan | The sexy Chris Costello Wouter | Hey Gitomer, thanks for greeting me every morning with my Chinese name. It is really so nice and sweet of you. I enjoyed every little talk we had in the hallway and on campus. I appreciate that we build our friendships through those small talks. “Don’t be too intense, man!” Sandra | Bryan, I wish you all the best and hope we can stay in touch. Marc | Really enjoyed being your neighbor during RC Year. Congrats on the engagement! Alfonso

14: Thanks for doing so much for the section. Octoberfest was SO much fun with Nathan & you. It's not fun to play mafia with you though... Xx, Pato | Prof. Emeritus Wang - once you retire, you can't retire again! Can't wait for social events in the next decades! Ben | If everything else fails, just organize the social events for your employer and you'll quickly climb up the corporate ladder! Pablo | I hope you're going to take good care of those cheeks after we leave HBS, Rahul | #1 Social Chair...Thank you for making our time at HBS so great! Elizabeth | C Dubs is our social glue.

Hide | C Wang, you will always been my favorite biking partner. Michael N. | Thanks for educating me about the Wii!! Gonna miss those days! Teebs | Section A could not have imagined a better social chair. It was great partying with you over the past two years. Bryan B. | Hey gal, we got to know each other much better towards the end of this two-year journey. I wish we had hung out more early. However, it’s never too late to “learn” (a new friend). Thanks for sharing bed with me during different section retreats. Thanks for inviting me over for Thanksgiving dinner with your family. Thanks for inviting me to your b-day dinner. I really enjoyed your company. Sandra | Caroline, mademoiselle extraordinaire! Thank you for doing such an amazing job organizing our social life for the past 2 years. I'm jealous you're heading back to SF - make sure to catch some Cal games while you're there and cheer on our Golden Bears for me! Marc | The best party organizer, ever! Paolo | A truly amazing job as social chair. Speechless...

TLS. Teeba | There are dancers. There are good dancers. And then there's the next level--Christine at a club. Jordan | My dear Pippi! Always so warm and positive - I'm going to miss you. But at least we'll be in touch. Until the next costume party... maybe this time we'll remember the glue. Mia | Thank you for advising me how to travel in Germany and Austria. Thanks to you, it was a great trip for me. Hide | Boston will miss your partying skills!

17: Whether we're struggling through image, crushing carafes of wine or teaming up to takeover the world, I'm so happy to have you as a friend! Elizabeth | 2nd Semester RC was the Best! You dressing up as Carrot, I will never forget! At some point of time, I will write you a song again! :-) Anuroop | I will still never fully understand the carrot song or any of that skydeck, but I fully enjoyed it all. Thayer | Do you remenber a photo we took with a Sumo wrestler in Tokyo? That was a kind of highlights of Japan Trip seriously. Hide | Smile! To the our ever-smiling sectionmate... Pablo | CLPN: merci merci merci for picking me up every morning in fall 2007 - don't know how I could have done it without you! You are one great lady with lots of carrot in you (lol) so I'll be on the look-out for news from Massachussetts' fashionista :) Marc | eeeeeeeeeoooouuuuuuuuu Rahul | Karaoke is your strong suit...oh, also shopping. Blake | Our ten year reunion will come faster than you can say Christina Elizabeth Helena LaPointe-Nelson. Danish | CLPN! I love her fiestiness and passion for issues.

Will be interesting to see how career decisions take people on completely different paths! Anuroop | Run, Dalia, run! (SF Marathon, July 09) Ben | Dalia, fabulous job on the talent show girl! The very best 3 hour time block of my days at HBS. Rock on and see you at the next one!

20: Dan Osnoss | Keep up the Spanish, you rock! Pato | The awkward bird dance was the biggest hit of fall 2007. Thayer | Dan’s ability to oscillate between serious and funny at a moment’s notice makes him a blast to be with wherever we go. Jordan | The Swan. iFart. Nuff said. Elizabeth | The coolest nerdy guy you will ever meet. Bryan B. | Osnoss, you're a real mensch. :) I'm going to miss our randomly serious conversations.

I hope all goes well for you in NYC and that we can keep playing b-ball at all of our class reunions, no matter how old or less able we get :) Marc | I was very surprised when I met you in a Christmas party in NY.

Shannah | “Can I please try your engagement ring? I really love it! I just really love it!” Said you. “Do you also love my man?” asked by me. Haha… Thanks for being a fun friend around! Sandra | How cute was the Starbucks barista? Danish

22: Hahaha KIMONO! Love, the kid who got offended ;p Teebs | Give Jasmine my love. Rahul | One day, as you promised, when we're both in Korea, you must take me to that tailor of yours that you keep raving about. Joey | May you enjoy many years of excellent service. Blake | What happend in Palo-Alto - stays in Palo Alto! (dare you to wear the weirdo red hat from New Orleans to class!) Ben | Your comments in class made even BAV early in the morning relatively entertaining. I will get you back for the coffee incident, sooner or later, so keep a look out Mr. Danish. Shilpa | In someday, I will use Singapore Airline, reminding of you. Hide | Danish, warm greetings from Nataliya Vasilievna:-) | Danish - please come visit us in Paris soon! No need to bring your toys though, it won't get you anywhere with French women. Seriously, you were a great classmate and I hope can hang out again soon.

That was hilarious. Hide | Drew, hey man, all the best for HBS and beyond.

Hope to see you on stage again! Christine | Keep working the Sloan factor.

Pablo | It's like bringing pizza to a pizzeria (or having a girlfriend when coming to HBS) Wouter | Paolo, I wonder how many "disagree" words are going to be on this page:-): but "the more we disagree, the more chance there is that at least one of us is right.":-) -Nataliya | Paolo, I disagree, you really DID have insightful things to share during the RC :) Marc | Guess why I enjoyed Energy and IMAGE so much?

66: Philip Meicler | You were always there to support me and push me further!! Thanks neighbor. Love, Teebs | Phil’s admirable intensity captures collective ambition and focuses it on singular efforts—a bit like holding a magnifying glass up to capture sunlight, although with more ridiculous antics along the way.

Sandra | This is a wake up call for Ravi Sarin, your online poker buddies are waiting .... Danish

69: Roberto Soler | RJ smells like a baaaaby! What a coincidence! Haha.. Love, Baby Teebs | There are two types of people—those that take the world really seriously and those that do not.

Xx, Pato | I hope your entrepreneurial plans come true! x Kirsten | Philosopher. Blake | Sumatraa!! Nii | I wish I had Sumaiya's capacity for ideas!!

Also, it was great night that you made me African dishes. Your smile make me happy. Hide | When people walk away from Temi it is always with a broad smile, bigger than the one they had before, no doubt caused by her infectious optimism. Jordan | Thank you for always having a huge smile on your face no matter what time of day! x Kirsten | Sorry about that first negotiation exercise :) Tina | Temi section dinner was special, I had a chance to confirm what an amazing woman you are. I'm sure God has incredible surprises for you. Take care and please keep in touch, Pato | Temi Temi Temi. Don't ever forget those golden words of wisdom that I imparted to you. All the best! Rahul

I know I can always count on you to party it up no matter how tough the workload gets! Shilpa | To the dancing queen -great times!:-) Nataliya | Who else could be more fun to travel and party with than Tevia? Blake | What I love about Tevia is her ability to take risks. Tevia makes big decisions, and doesn't look back. She is so courageous. I know her life will be full of big, bold, and wonderful things! Shannah | Admiro verdaderamente la tuya fuerza e honestidad, la tuya amistad y capacidad de amar. Estar contigo me cambi para ser una persona mejor, con ms amor por las pequeas cosas de la vida.

Thanks for organizing it and hope we get to travel again together to some exotic country! Shilpa | Your ideal bachelor... is a lucky man! Nuf said.

90: Wouter Maes | I'm actually a little jealous you'll be in Boston next year.. Don't miss me too much though! ;p Baby Teebs | Wouter's nothing but trouble. But when we look back on this yearbook we need to remember that it's meant in a Good Way! Jordan | Yes mom, we look good together, but no mom, we're not a couple. Mia | Whose butt are you going to grab now that I'm gone? Joey | Wouter, well done for succeeding at your main goal at HBS! I'm obviously not talking about classes... you naughty Belgian! Paris | The women in Boston won't know what hit them...we sure didn't:) Elizabeth | After the first semester, I remember telling Chafen that "Wouter's a great guy, and super smart, but if we had a daughter I wouldn't want him anywhere near her." By the end of the second semester, I realized that my comment was uninformed and completely unfair. Unless something goes dramatically wrong, our daughter won't be Asian. Eric | To our politically incorrect Belgian! Thanks for all the fun! Pablo | I remember we went to buy Priscilla stuff together. That's strange shopping. I like your sense of humor and preference of Asians. Hide | It is always fun to spend time with my favorite Belgian. Make sure you keep in touch! Shilpa | One of the dirtiest minds in the section (see Anders). Paolo | You're my second favorite Belgian. Michael N | Warm greetings!:-) Nataliya | Vive la Belgique libre :).

Anuroop | I am glad you said what I wanted to say or at least thought what I was probably thinking. Go internationals! Sara | You are just a fun MAN!!! Sandra | A lifelong legacy of inappropriate comments! That’s the way we love you. Boney | In the words of John Lennon "instant karma's gonna get you, alright" Rahul

91: Yao cares so deeply about the people around her, yet she does it in a way that makes her 100% Fun. It’s a real gift. Jordan | No once in the section can recognize (except for Kosuke), but your Japanese is really great! I felt you always tried to help others. You are really great!! Hide | Yao, I have no idea where you find that limitless supply of energy every day (or for that matter, that limitless range of water bottles). Keep it up! Paris | Thank YOU for always being there! Your silly faces, cards, presents, and ongoing encouragement are things I will always appreciate! Lots of hugs and kisses, Teebs | Sweet Yao, thanks for your smile! Sara | Worst sneaker ever. Wouter | Is there anyone in the world as perfectly unassuming, kind, and giving as Yao? There isn't. We are lucky to know her. Shannah | Warm greetings!:-) Nataliya | Nice job in IFM with Desai! You really know your stuff :) Marc | Yao, you are a completely delightful ball of energy. You never fail to cheer me up and I'm always happy to see you! Kate | Thank you for forcing me out of the HBS bubble to attend the ballet each semester! x Kirsten | Yao Li | Thanks for the chopstick lesson and your sweet smile! Nii

92: Perhaps one of the most incredible things to come out of an HBS class full of 90 headstrong, opinionated people is the strength of the bonds created here. Through it all, we have stuck together: helping each other through cold calls and hell weeks; celebrating engagements, weddings and babies; comforting one another in times of loss and uncertainty. We have learned that no matter how independent we are, there is no weakness in finding solace and support in each other. We may not know what the road ahead brings, but we should remember that it won’t be a lonely road. | Sumaiya
