London Calling!

Last week 60% of my epic 2017 US/UK populism class that went to London came to visit my 2019 class, to share insignts and recommendations about their time in the UK. Such a wonderful convo, covering everything from the lofty (make yourself go and do everything you can!) to the practical (bring a pillow and take Vitamin C!) Thank you SO much to Grayson HarveyBeckett CostelloTanvi SinghDan Simon, Veton Hasku, and Dalal El-Barabarawi! Lauren Grimaldi, Monica Escalera, Randy Colon, and Jocelyne Soto- we missed you!

Love this fam.
