Happy Soul Food Friday!
It has been quite the season filled with end-of-the-year activities in both K-12 and Higher Ed. So far I have already enjoyed a Law School graduation at UCLA for my cousin Freyaan and a graduation at USD for my cousin Cowas.
Last weekend I was privileged as part of the UCSD Alumni Board to experience an amazing Alumni Weekend at UCSD, and meet the new Chancellor Designate
Pradeep Khosla who will begin his term as UCSD’s 8th Chancellor on August 1st.

Thanks Larry for these last few submissions
Are you crazy enough to believe you can change the world?
I know you are…
Keep seeing with a new pair of eyes, hearing with your heart and stay sweet!
Pay it Forward…
