So You Think You Know: Reva Gaur, Full-Time MBA 20142 min read

revaBefore Stern I:
Worked at the Educational Alliance – a community-based nonprofit on the Lower East Side – as the Director of Communications, focusing on social media marketing and digital advocacy. Before that, I worked in marketing & publicity for the film industry and an alternative rock radio station.

I wrote my Stern essays about becoming:
The chief marketing officer of a technology-driven social enterprise or startup in the education sector.

In 10 years I see myself:
In a job where I’m constantly learning new things, not sitting at a desk all day, and making an impact in some tangible way. Possibly living in the San Francisco Bay Area, but if not, still in the best borough: Brooklyn!

The one word I would use to describe myself:

If I had one meal left on Earth I would eat:
It’s a tie between spaghetti limone from Lil’ Frankies in the East Village and veggie ramen from Sapporo in midtown. If dessert is allowed, then it’s totally a cupcake from Sugar Sweet Sunshine in the LES.

My favorite CEO is:
Nancy Lublin, CEO of – I’ve always been a fan of how she leads this super tech-savvy nonprofit.

I love living in New York because:
The diversity of industries, experiences, cultures, neighborhoods and people. All conveniently accessible via subway. (Despite the fact that I grew up in suburban NJ, I’m a terrible driver.)

I hate living in New York because:
Finding a new apartment – and moving into said new apartment – is the worst.

My first childhood memory is:
Putting in a special request for strawberry-flavored milk (which I referred to as “pink milk”) in preschool.

I’m glad I decided to come to Stern because:
I got to meet so many smart, fun and passionate classmates, pursue my interests in both technology and social enterprise (without people thinking that’s weird), and got the real b-school experience, while also taking advantage of everything that NYC has to offer, professionally and personally.

Something no Sternies know about me:
I practiced (and taught) archery for many summers at a sleep-away camp in New Jersey.  Hunger Games, anyone?
