Hi Attiya and Latif!


Happy New Year!


With the start of the new year, Anu and I were reflecting on 2017 and what we have achieved. We couldn't help but think about our time at NCAS back in 2004 (!) and the enormous impact you have had on our lives. We would not have been able to achieve what we have without your help!


We last spoke in 2013 when you were helping me with my business school applications.  As an update, I got into NYU Stern, so Anu and I moved to New York. Since then, I earned my MBA, worked as an investment banker for a year, realized it wasn't for me, and now work in a small finance firm as a healthcare investor for early stage companies. I find my job extremely exciting as I learn about cutting-edge medical technologies and make decisions on whether to invest $10-50 million to help the companies grow. Anu is now in her 5th and final year of radiology residency at NYU, near me. Come this July, she will start her 1-year neuroradiology fellowship, also at NYU.


Anu and I are both loving married life. While we have been very busy with work, we have had a lot of fun these past few years traveling around the world, supporting each other as we start our careers, and living in New York City!


I was recently helping a cousin in India with his business school applications when I suddenly realized how much work you have put in to help us achieve our goals in life!  We are eternally grateful for your efforts.


We hope everything is going well with you, Latif, and the family!
