Oyez Oyez Oyez!!!
Yup, we've done it again! The team of 5 is now the team of 6 as The Urban Politico adds its own financial expert to the roster (which is good to have during these bad economic times), and she goes by the name GrandCentral.
GrandCentral is a first-time blogger coming to us with an Empire State of Mind. Born and raised in Upstate New York, she has an appreciation for the hustle and bustle of Wall Street, but a strong sense of community and advocacy. In 2008, she left her cushy, Investment Banking gig to pursue a career in the non-profit sector and has never looked back.
A first-generation American and transitioning Vegan, you will find her viewpoints sometimes odd, very passionate and at times eclectic. For those of you playing along at home, you've seen that she has dropped a few guest posts for us from time to time under the alias Ms. Chan. She is a self-proclaimed risk taker and thrives on sporadic life decisions.
Even though her goals of a career in non-profit didn't quite work out, it led her to to an even better path - the road to Law School. She is an aspiring Attorney, currently awaiting an admissions decision to law school. An allie of the the LGBT Community, upon passing the New York State Bar, GrandCentral plans to start her career as a public interest lawyer, delivering liberty and justice to all Americans.
So keep your eye out for a new voice on the blog and be sure to give a warm welcome to our newest team member.
