30 Under 30 About the Program/Main Page
I’m an introvert through and through. I used to have meltdowns before high school dances or big parties. But in October 2015, I put myself out there, creating and hosting the first installment of “So, You Want to Buy a Condo,” an educational event for first-time buyers. That night, I guzzled chamomile tea and prayed for a good turnout. The night went swimmingly, and I’ve taught this course to hundreds of first-time buyers since. In 2016, I went bigger, bringing SYWTBAC to companies across Chicago, such as GrubHub, Havas, WeWork, and Uber. I adore first-time buyers—their trust in me, their curiosity, their speedy iMessaging—and have found so much fulfillment in education.
