The Donald Edward Bragg & Diane Sims Bragg Scholarship

The UCLA Economics Department has a variety of resources that benefit Economics and Business Economics majors. There are some great scholarships and internship programs that I wish I had looked into earlier in my career at UCLA. These include the Sharpe Fellows Program which gives students an opportunity to work closely with a mentor. I suggest that all UCLA students (and all college students for that matter) check out their department's website regardless of the their major. They won't regret it.

That's the beauty of a big institution like UCLA. It teaches you to be proactive and to seek out things even you didn't know you were looking for. I was a little late in the ball game, but didn't hesitate to jump onboard once I knew what was out there.

I applied for The Donald Edward Bragg and Diane Sims Bragg Scholarship over the summer and was delighted to find out on 9/16/2011 (my brother's 25th birthday) that I was the 2011-2012 recipient! I don't know how many people applied for the award, but it nonetheless feels amazing to be honored for my academic achievements.

Check it out here.

A Versace Kind of Affair

Last week, my boss, the VIP/PR Coordinator of the West Coast, went to NYC to help at the launch party for the Versace for HM collaboration. I wasn’t asked to go along with her, so I stayed in the LA office and made sure things were running smoothly.

That same week I had rehearsals for Willow as well as interview preparations for Deloitte. Did I forget to mention school? That was thrown in there somewhere.

Needless to say my stress level hit new a high.

We just had the pre-party for the line on Friday at the Versace boutique in Beverly Hills, and everything was gone in the first fifteen minutes. It was a fun event and I met a lot of great LA fashionistas, stylists, and bloggers including Caroline, who writes for The Daily Truffle

Nearly Impossible November and Fall Quarter

Whether it’s something in the air or something in the water, Fall 2011 is turning out to be one of the most hectic (and amazing) quarters I’ve ever experienced. In the next few blog posts, I’ll take you through the projects that have made this a truly unforgettable time.

A quick shout out to the ever elusive SBTRKT who played at the Mondrian Sessions last month. It was a rare treat to see that mask up close. Only thing that would have completely blew my mind was if Yukimi made an appearance for "Wildfire". Didn't happen, but one can wish right?
