Dear MSF Class of 2021

Dear MSF Class of 2021,

One of the highlights of my professional career has been working with all of you. I have been awed by your strength, brilliance, positivity, resilience, and humor throughout this historic time. Your ability to pivot quickly and flawlessly to online classes and to a multitude of virtual interview platforms was nothing short of remarkable. I can’t thank you enough for the many laughs and numerous opportunities to see such a wide variety of Zoom backgrounds (!) I also wish I had kept a list of how many times I was told, “Jennifer, you’re on mute,” or “we can’t see your screen,”or “you’re frozen!!” I will always look back fondly on our times together with a smile, remembering special moments shared in Coffee Chats, Finance PAGs, one-on-ones, and mock interviews, fostering bonds that I know will last a lifetime. 

I am thrilled to watch you fly in your next chapter and know, without a doubt, you are ready to take the finance industry by storm! Always stay in touch…however you prefer… email, WeChat, WhatsApp, LinkedIn…it’s all good! I will be cheering for you every step of the way, applauding your accomplishments and liking your LinkedIn posts! You deserve every success and more joy than your heart can hold. A million congratulations! It has been a privilege to partner with you.
