Shelley Wu, 2008, Boston but soon to be San Francisco
What are you up to? Professionally: Exploring the cloud computing tech space through software and client driven business analytics. I will be moving to SF soon to be a HR systems analyst for a skincare/dermatology line. Recreationally: Suffering through the millennial identity crisis of our generation, on the search for the perfect latte, and becoming music festival enthusiast.
How'd you get here? Since graduating college I worked as a software business consultant for a boutique company that just got acquired by IBM. Getting the chance to work with clients from all different industries ranging from on-line clothing design companies to financial institutions made me realize how much I despised the software implementation lifecycle. I wanted to be at the heart of the tech space, on the client side, this is where the move to SF comes into play.
What are your goals? To go back to school part-time to get my Masters (still undecided on what though), travel to Venice before it sinks, learn how to grill the perfect steak, and attend Coachella.
Advice for WHS Students? Whether we like it or not we're all grouped into stereotypes in high school, but you shouldn't let these preconceived notions prevent you from connecting with people. Some of the most interesting people I've met throughout my life have also been the most open-minded.
