Many of you have likely seen the popular Humans of New York blog in which a photographer roams the city collecting life-story summaries of people he meets. His work is fascinating and often deeply moving as his subjects share what they consider to be some of the most significant aspects of their lives.
Inspired by his efforts and his subjects’ photos and stories, we’ve launched our own version of the project, which we’re calling REAL People of the College of Business.
Our weekly series continues today with Kareman Rawy, the daughter of Egyptian immigrants. Kareman is from Brentwood, Calif. (the one in the Bay Area, not Los Angeles), is in her first year in the professional school and is serving as president of SIM Club (Students of Information Management).
Here’s more of her story, in her own words:
“My inspiration to help people started from helping my younger brother as a little girl. He is one year younger than me and even though he has cerebral palsy that made him unable to talk and walk, I always read to him dinosaurs, science, and astronomy books to comfort him. That’s when I realized that I have a passion for science, specifically astronomy, but I also want to make an impact in the world by making a business that is known worldwide like my late idol once created. The late Steve Jobs once said, ‘I want to make a ding in the universe.’ However, I hope that I can become the next big bang the universe will see and hopefully one day I can change and help the world in a big way like he once did.”
If you’re interested in being featured as one of the REAL People of the College of Business, please email Steve Lundeberg or come see him in Austin Hall 384D.
