We discovered on Tuesday that almost all of us are from California! Mostly SoCal, but with some San Jose, Sacramento & Stocton’s mixed in. We do have 2 students from other states and 3 from other countries. I might be remembering wrong (please LMK!) but I think it was:

  • Virginia
  • Nebraska
  • South Korea
  • Spain
  • Germany

I wish we had even more international students and students from other states, but it’s awesome to have these 5! Be sure to chat with them when you have the chance. As I tried to describe on Tuesday with the “Designed by Apple in California; assembled in China” discussion, I think diversity is at the heart of creativity. We often think of style as something that comes top down, from people like Tory Burch or Taylor Swift, but if you really look around, style so often comes bottom up from street culture. Of course creativity is valuable in “creative” fields like Art or Design or Marketing, but I’m convinced that “creativity” is also an essential element in being a great Accountant or Biochemist or Physical Therapist.
