guestpost / Wednesday

Before you read what Jayden has to say, let me start by introducing her. Jayden and I went to boarding school together. I am always struck by her ability to back her words with action in environments which are heavy on “discourse” but lacking in doers. She might also be one of those rare people who you gain more respect for the more you spend time with them. She’s now a fourth-year undergraduate student at […]

Hi everyone! My name is Taylor Kwok, and I am a rising junior at Northwestern studying Economics, Psychology, and Integrated Marketing Communications. Unlike most of the other peer posts on Sid’s blog, I’m not going to talk about an internship, but I’d like to share with you all some lessons that I’ve learned over the first half of my summer.
