Launchpad: Success Beyond Williams

Williams alumni go on to successful careers in law, education, medicine, the arts and so much more, and they attribute their success to the experiences they had and the connections they made during their years here.

Mariam Naficy ’91 can attest to that: After Williams, she worked for Goldman Sachs and attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business before becoming the founder and CEO of Minted. Read more of Mariam’s story and learn why she thinks Williams graduates are the best job candidates.

Alumni Spotlight

The Covid-19 pandemic changed everything about how Brad Wasserman ’96 and his colleagues at Oberlin Road Pediatrics practiced medicine, with Wasserman even converting his 1978 school bus into an onsite flu shot clinic. In May, the Oberlin staff began administering Covid-19 vaccine shots to kids age 12 and up, and later to children five and up in November. Wasserman speaks about rolling out the vaccines, addressing parents’—and patients’—concerns and the aptly named “Cool Bus.”

Student Spotlight

With about two weeks to go in her junior year, Rebecca Kuo ’22, a music and political science major from Buffalo, N.Y., received a call that would change her life. Jason Hehir ’98, director of the new Netflix docuseries Countdown: Inspiration4 Mission to Space, which chronicled the September 2021 SpaceX Inspiration4 orbital mission, recruited the budding filmmaker to join the series’ editing team for the summer. Kuo worked on editing raw and archival footage, as well as interviews and shot footage from the launch site, to wrap around what would be near-live coverage of the actual mission.

Kiara ‘24 tells us about her unique summer experience working with a professor:

“I am a history and political science double major, and after my freshman year, I was unsure about what kind of work I wanted to pursue over the summer. I saw on Handshake that Professor Ned Schaumberg of the Williams-Mystic Program was looking for a research assistant. I decided to apply even though I didn’t have a strong background in environmental studies, and I’m so grateful I did. Throughout the summer, we worked on two main projects. The first was researching how Indigenous groups along the New England coast, specifically the Wabanaki and the Mi’kmaq, interacted with English settlers during Dummer’s War in 1722, focusing in particular on the destructive implications behind the colonial use of the term “piracy.” Our research culminated in an article published in Sea History magazine in the spring of 2022, and it taught me the extent to which Indigenous maritime expertise often goes under-appreciated in many published works. My second project involved maintaining and updating the Searchable Sea Literature database, an online resource devoted to authors whose works relate to the water. We embarked on a project to tag authors and works with specific search terms that included geographic areas, genres, time periods, and subject matters, and this experience helped me witness firsthand the framework of running a research database. Overall, these opportunities with Professor Schaumberg expanded my passion for environmental history, and I learned so much more about Indigenous communities and authors of color within the realm of maritime studies!”
