Hello Kristen, first thank you for agreeing to speak to the Stern Oppy!

I know we’re amid finals and it is a busy time for students and professors alike, so I appreciate you making the time for us today.

Stern Somebody: Eryn Park

The Oppy staff is proud to continue a feature called “Stern Somebody,” telling the stories of remarkable classmates and how they became the exceptional people they are today.

If there is one place Eryn Park never thought she would be at this point in her life, it’s a soon-to-be MBA graduate working as a product marketing manager for a sustainable beauty brand. Since childhood, she’s always dreamed of moving to NYC and becoming a pastry chef. She cites the muffin man scene from Shrek as having a huge impact on her. The gumdrop buttons! So she packed up, moved across the country for undergrad at NYU, and worked her way up from fine dining kitchen intern to executive pastry chef.…

Stern Singles Presents: Shaina Himelstein

Meet the incredible Shaina! I had the pleasure of meeting Shaina doing Leadership Fellows this last year and have been continuously impressed by the person she is and her humility. I remember the first session of LF and hearing that she worked at Burger King. This idiot (yours truly) thought that she worked AT a Burger King. But no, no, she was in senior management for the corporation of BK, not flipping burgers. She was just so humble about all her incredible life experiences. She is now an MBA2 graduating this month and heading off to work at Meta in Global Operations.…

Stern Singles Presents: Sam Pollack

Sam is a full time MBA candidate graduating in May. He is originally from Pittsburgh, PA and has lived in Washington, D.C. and Newport Beach, CA before coming to Stern. Hobbies include golf, tennis, traveling, and poker. He is passionate about all things finance, holds a CFA charter, and garnered more than 2 million page views as a writer for Seeking Alpha (prior to graduating college). He is focused on using his skills to help make the world a better place.

Sternie Testimonials:

“Everyone knows that Sam is one of the smartest students in class, but his niceness and generosity make him stand out in a class crowded with amazing people.

Stern Singles Presents: Nicolette Wong

Nicolette is an MBA2 in the full time program, and is set to graduate later this month. She is originally from Singapore, where she used to be a writer and editor in the luxury magazine industry. She seized the opportunities at Stern to pivot careers, and will be heading to Mastercard post-graduation. She hasn’t had any kind of routine for two years, but can reliably be found digging into good food or petting a fuzzy creature. She can’t believe that her MBA experience is about to end, but is excited for what lies ahead.

Sternie Testimonials:

“Most people know of Nicolette as the resident fashionista of our class, but to me, she is that one person who knows all the things — she has great taste in food and drink, offers the best beauty tips and tricks, and is the voice of reason for her friends who are figuring out what to do with their lives.”
