Words from Alumni

We learned to listen to each other and respect differing points of view. We learned that challenging encounters are opportunities for growth. We learned tolerance. The experience has had a profound influence on my life -- from college, to medical school, to my work in emergency medicine.
Dr. Doron Korinow, Class of 2000 | Tel Aviv University & University of Massachusetts Medical Center | Now: Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician at Anna Jaques Hospital and Melrose-Wakefield Hospital

My years at Gann are some of my fondest. There are quite a few people who impacted my life in positive and dramatic ways, from coaches to teachers of all disciplines. What I remember most fondly about Gann was every faculty member’s personal investment in his or her students. The genuine interest of teachers in a student’s success is hard to find.
Margalit Chafitz, Class of 2006 | Boston University, Class of 2010 | Now: Senior Producer at Sullivan

Keeping quiet is not part of the Gann mentality. Gann has developed very effective formats for dialogue and the free exchange of ideas, and we were constantly encouraged to respectfully share our opinions. In different ways, I think that every student graduated with the ability to speak up even in the face of opposition. In many situations, I've been able to voice ideas with the knowledge that the worst-case-scenario is that someone might disagree.

    Economics and Big Data

    Jonathan Roth, Class of 2009
    At Gann, Jonathan Roth '09 loved math and history. Now in graduate school, he has found a way to combine his analytical side with his interest in the humanities.
    Jonathan is a fourth-year economics doctoral student at Harvard.  "I fell in love with economics during my first semester at Penn," he explains. "It combines the study of how people and firms operate and also uses a lot of math. But the seeds were planted earlier at Gann, where I developed skills in math and an interest in people and institutions."

  • Making an Impact at the United Nations

    Sarah Cohen, Class of 2011
    If you've heard a speech delivered by Israel's ambassador to the United Nations in the past year, it's likely it was written by Gann alum Sarah Cohen '11.

    Sarah is the Director of Speechwriting for the Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations. In that role, she writes and edits U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon's speeches to the United Nations and the broader Jewish community. Topics have ranged from Middle East politics and security to human rights, satellite technology to agricultural development.

    "Although I'm a speechwriter, it's almost impossible to put into words how meaningful this job is to me," says Sarah, who majored in religion at Middlebury College and speaks Arabic and some Hebrew, though she writes speeches exclusively in English. "To have input into what Israel says to the world community is a special and huge responsibility."

    Environmental Activism

    Jacob Hershman, Class Of 2016

    If Jacob Hershman has his way, the University of Pennsylvania will divest its endowment from the fossil fuel industry and play a larger role in fighting climate change.
    Jacob '16 is a leader in the college’s Fossil Free Penn (FFP) student group, which has waged a multi-year campaign to convince the University to stop new investments in the fossil fuel industry, remove holdings in the top 200 coal, oil, and natural gas companies, and reinvest a portion of the extricated funds into clean energy. 
    “I constantly think about the environment and climate change,” said Jacob, who is majoring in English with a minor in environmental studies. “It’s unfortunate that my generation has to think about these things, but it’s the world we’re growing up in.”
