The goal for this post is to articulate my experience at a Tech company and the transformative academic impact it had on me.


Since leaving X.com, my goal has been to continue to immerse myself in academia and excel. The experience did more than just put me around new people; it put me around exceptionally bright individuals whose alma maters were from the likes of UVa, Darthmouth, and Carnegie Melon, to name a few. Every interaction and conversation was engaging and i was being challenged each day. For the first time in my life, i saw the true value in higher education.


My experience as an employee was completely different on the other hand. A different story for a different post.
