In a day in age where we here all the negative things about young black men, it's refreshing to spotlight a positive figure. I can't say enough about this young man, but here a few notables - He got offers to play football at many top football schools, but chose Ivy League, Univ of Pennsylvania because of academics. Received an award for top student Athelete in state of Georgia, and best of all, one of the most respectful, kindest persons you will meet. Meet @rg2point0, a kid you would love your daughter to bring home. #positive#greatkid#athlete#academics#uofpenn
I love lighting. Even in boring settings you get great effects with light. The fluorescent light above illuminates the hallway and the word “electrical” above the doors. There must be two lightbulbs tucked in the corners of the crawl space lighting up the air ducts and then the work light for the trainers to sharpen skates on the machine. The Class of 1923 Arena has so much character. It’s dirty and old, but reminds me so much of rinks when I was young. #oilerstv#uofpenn#classof1923arena

What’s a better way to end this semester than presenting the product of your hard work to the entire cohort and IEDP faculty members? Swipe left to see the diverse range of topics our IEDP students covered in their Technical Proposal presentations today. Bravo to everyone for their good work and team work!
Grey days and hot teas here at Penn 🍵. encouraging everyone to take some time for self care today. Life is precious, so take care of yourself and your community.
IEDP students and Dr. GK (@ameenagk) celebrated our last Proseminar today with some delicious potluck food. Even though this semester is coming to an end, we are very hopeful for the coming adventures and look forward to learn more, grow more and laugh more as a cohort! 🤩
IEDP’s last study break of the semester was a great success! Thanks to our graduate assistants for all your efforts in making our cohort so tight and cohesive :) We look forward to more fun events next semester!
Last night, IEDP students Fatima, Shruti, and Radhika and our program coordinator Lauren engaged in critical conversations at the “Can We Talk? Political Dialogue in Donald Trump’s America” event at Cairn University (@cairnu). This event was a collaboration between Cairn University and University of Pennsylvania (@uofpenn) to provide a public forum to engage students and faculty and to bring together a wide array of people from a broad range of political perspectives.
Learning about intersectionality, visible and invisible identities, and “boundaries” in Proseminar today through this fun “snowball exercise” ❄️
Don’t forget to take a break and enjoy Penn’s beautiful campus and Philadelphia sunsets!
I know you can't understand my grind, the time away, the missed events, the constant phone ringing, the multi state travel, my iPad as a bedside companion, always in search of an outlet to plug my devices, early mornings, late nights, unplanned showings, a slave to my craft....you call it crazy, I call security.
I have never been a person who depended on any one. I depend on my gift and it shall carry me through. I am an extremist I can only go hard giving 2000% to all I do. Before Real Estate I worked in #FinancialServices pulling more than 65 hours (overtime) some weeks to meet #SEC filing deadlines. I even worked 2 full time jobs a few years in the early 2000's because I needed to make $100k for my kids to go to private school. Those years doing what no one else would made it easy for my kids as they benefited going to #NewYork top schools. (#FordamPrep#Chapin#OldDominion#UofPenn#Columbia So NO I'm not lucky, I'm a BEAST! But beast need love too!!!!!!!!! Thank you repost pic above @kingalcarte100 by way of @thegoodquote
We had a full house of attendees for our Baby Sleep Workshop yesterday! Dr. Melisa Moore, a clinical psychologist and board certified sleep expert from @childrensphila shared her knowledge with us! #pennfamilycenter#uofpenn#sleepbaby
I know we all agree that this is by far the most killer combo when it comes to graduation. Don't believe me? Elon is probably the greatest example why you should.
