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.
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.”
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.
