Melanie is clearly foreseeing her future...

I was currently in Portland, Oregon for the annual write/speak/code conference where I'm learning how to get into technical writing, open source coding, and speaking at conferences. My sophomore year at Middlebury College was amazing, I really liked the classes I took and met so many new people. I'm still a computer science & psychology double major and am involved in the women in cs club and women's rugby team. This year, I got to attend various events such as HackPrinceton, HackMIT, Grace Hopper, Pearl Hacks, and Harvard WeCode. I also won the Google Women Techmakers scholarship and the BOLD Women's Leadership scholarship. This summer, I interned as a full stack software engineer at a women's health tech startup, DotLab and taught middle school girls how to code video games with Girls Make Games. I traveled to participate in different tech programs at companies like Google, Twitter, and Square. I'm very excited for the upcoming school year!

"It felt almost too surreal graduating from UC Berkeley this past May. After four years, I finally did it! I walked across the stage twice with a dual degree in Business Administration and Media Studies. My work at the UC Berkeley Office of Communications & Public Affairs since freshman year and research through the Haas School of Business paid off when I received my admission into graduate school. Last week, I packed my life into a suitcase and brought my beloved MacBook Pro to New York City, where I will be pursuing a Master of Science in Strategic Communication at Columbia University. Born and raised in Oakland with the UC Berkeley campus a mere 20-minute drive from my family home, this is my first big move away from the Bay Area -- and I can't be more excited for what's to come as I tackle my next challenge in the media capital of the world. Here's to new beginnings in the city that never sleeps! :)"

Carmen has something to say about our David Bunnell

This post is long overdue. 10/18/16, you left for a better place. I didn't receive the news until last month; it was three days after the election. I cried more than when I heard the election results, because in a world filled with violence and hate, I had forgotten love.

Three years ago, I was awarded the Andrew Fluegelman Foundation Award: a MacBook Pro computer. The Founder, David Bunnell, read my application essay. Throughout high school, I completed my assignments on an old desktop or at the public library. After getting into Berkeley, I was worried because I couldn't afford a laptop. David and the Fluegelman Foundation not only gave me the technology I needed to succeed in college, but they became valuable mentors. David checked in with us regularly, invited scholars to fundraising events with leaders in tech, and even his holiday parties. I remember him and his wife Jackie not letting me leave the party until I had taken 2/3rds of the leftovers home in Tupperware containers. Never have I known anyone so kindhearted and so caring of Oakland's youth. To change an aspiring student's life, sometimes it's not about the zeroes on a check. When I was struggling my first semester at Cal, I voiced my concerns I would become yet another statistic -- a statistic of the neighborhood I saw through the bars on my bedroom window of victims of hate crimes, gentrification, and a society that favors those with more than less. David believed in me. He alway did. As I write this post on my MacBook, I wish I could've said goodbye in person. Thank you, David. Rest in paradise.

Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and we look forward with anticipation to next year’s events and happenings regarding the Fluegelman Foundation.

Respectfully,

The Andrew Fluegelman Foundation

Bay Area friends: If you know any high school seniors who might qualify, encourage them to apply. And even if you don't, we could use your support to keep this program going. https://www.fbaward.org/give/ We can provide some hope to these kids to fulfill their potential. And they offer us great hope for the future, just because of who they are and what they've accomplished so far. This is a non-profit I help run with some friends to honor the memory of two close friends and mentors: Andrew Fluegelman and David Bunnell.
Here are profiles of our 10 Fluegelman Bunnell fellows for 2017, who we celebrated at a luncheon at Kingston 11 in Oakland on June 24.
