As a proud member of the Class of 2009 and Vice-President of the Alumni Association for the past two years, I’m so excited to embark on this new chapter as the 2021– 2023 President of the Brentwood School Alumni Association.
I started Brentwood in the 6th Grade and I really enjoyed my time over the years; my fondest memories coming from Latin class with Ms. Bali, singing at Carnegie Hall with the Concert Singers, and winning two CIF Tennis titles.
And wow...what a year it has been! I told myself I wouldn’t use any cheesy one-liners, but alas, here we are. The past fifteen months or so have been nothing short of challenging. From the uncertainty of the pandemic, Black lives lost to police brutality, a rise in Asian hate crimes, and the ongoing struggle in the Middle East, we’ve all struggled to keep our sanity and make sense of the barrage of catastrophes.
I’ve leaned heavily on my Brentwood family during this tough time. Those friendships I established about two decades ago are just as strong today. From the zoom birthday celebrations to the socially distanced hikes, and paddle tennis at Venice Beach, I always felt the love and support from my Brentwood crew.
One of my main goals as President is to ensure that we can reach a larger demographic of alumni and that all alums feel comfortable and proud to stay connected to their alma mater.
I look forward to meeting many more of you in the coming years and growing our overall presence.
Thank you to Past President Scott Sandler ’92, and to the rest of our Alumni Association volunteers and Executive Committee for laying the foundation for our work ahead. I’m ready to get started!
All Alumni are welcome to join us for the first Alumni Association Meeting of the 2021-2022 year on Monday, September 20 at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom.
