I am very excited to catch up on all the exciting news of my fellow ’07ers this May at our 10th Reunion! In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of the happenings of our class.
After traveling the last two years throughout Latin America, Laura Catana has spent the last year in Cuba, working with the island’s first independent music label, Guampara Music, alongside the talented musician DJ Jigüe. Based out of Havana, she has been involved in a variety of music events and productions, including music festivals, performances, and documentaries. Laura is not the only musician in the ’07 clan; Himanshu Suri is still a rapper. This year he’ll be performing at the Kaufman Music Center with pianist Vijay Iyer, and at Coachella with his new project, Swet Shop Boys. Rapping is pretty fun.
Meanwhile, Dante Furioso wrapped up three years at the Yale School of Architecture with an M. Arch I degree in May. He works for Selldorf Architects in New York. Scout James (née Michael) is in his third year of actor training at Juilliard’s drama division and has founded the only student-run newspaper there.
Amy Rosen is a recovering attorney who is writing corporate governance articles for CQ Roll Call, a D.C.-based company run by The Economist Group. Her stories are posted on Westlaw’s “Practitioner Insights” section. As she contemplates a move to the West Coast, she is running, lifting, and cooking, all while not trying not to forget the Chinese she learned from 2005 through 2007. She (sadly) just recently figured out Twitter and seeks interesting bird friends @amyleerosen.
Shawn Thomas Diefenbach recently relocated from Los Angeles to Brooklyn. He and his new pup, Champ, are living the dream.
And of course, we haven’t forgotten to ensure that there are students for future Wesleyan classes. Nasim Khoshkhou had a baby boy named Cameron (“CJ”) in October with husband Howard. They live in Bedford, N.Y., and would love to catch up with any Wes folks in the nearby area. Mary Campion Wolf and Patrick Wolf welcomed Eamon Peter Wolf (‘38?) to this bonkers world on Sept. 15. He is a great guy. The Wolf den is in Millburn, N.J. Mary is a pediatric hospitalist at Morristown Medical Center and Pat plucks strings in various locations with his band Goodnight, Texas. Nishita Roy-Pope (“Nya”) is loving life in Rhode Island. She and her husband, David, can’t believe six months have passed since the birth of their first child, Zamir! She is a consultant marketing manager at Dell and is infusing the Wes community service spirit into her work, including the establishment of a corporate high school internship program to promote STEM careers for girls.
