Ylan Nguyen and Julia Grasso ’12

We caught up with two of our HC Trinity alum. They’re class of 2012 grads and they’re up to some exciting stuff! Read on to see what they’re up to and check out their advice for those of us still at Trinity:

 

Name: Ylan Nguyen

Hometown: Nashua, NH

Major at Trinity: Political Science

Minor: Writing, Rhetoric and Media Arts

Current City: Boston, MA

 

HC: It’s been almost a year since you’ve graduated. What are you up to these days?

Ylan: Currently working for the Asian mafia, NBD. (JK)

 

HC: What’s been the best part starting this next chapter of your life?
Ylan: Being able to spend more time with my family.

 

HC: What’s the most challenging part?

Ylan: I’m not sure about challenging, but the saddest part is having friends move away for jobs! You have to be happy for them but you’re actually really so sad that you won’t get to see them except holidays and possibly long weekends!

 

HC: What do you miss the most about HC Trinity? (We miss you like, a lot).

Ylan: Our weekly meetings in the cave that would turn into weekend story telling time.

 

HC: Has anything from your experience on the HC Trinity staff proved useful in the real world?
Ylan: Being able to spot top-notch potential campus cuties is always a useful tool for life.

 

HC: Any advice for our readers about life after Trin?

Ylan: Enjoy TrinColl while you can; there is truly no other place like it.

 

 

Name: Julia Grasso

Hometown: Swampscott, MA

Major at Trinity: English and American Studies

Current City: Boston MA

 

HC: It’s been almost a year since you’ve graduated. What are you up to these days?

Julia: I am working at an advertising agency in Boston. 

 

HC: What’s been the best part starting this next chapter of your life?

Julia: Although I miss being a student I love the newfound independence I have acquired through making my own money and living on my own.

 

HC: What’s the most challenging part?

Julia: Your time isn’t your own anymore, which is a huge adjustment from college. The upside of this is if you love what you’re doing you’re time is well spent.

 

HC: What do you miss the most about HC Trinity? (We miss you like, a lot).

Julia: I miss all the bonding events and life long friendships that came out of working with all of you during my time with HC Trin (especially the weekend round ups).

 

HC: Has anything from your experience on the HC Trinity staff proved useful in the real world?

Julia: My experiences with HC Trin have helped me manage my interactions with others in the working world and really hone in on my writing/communication skills, which are both vital skills to have in any interview/job situation.

 

HC: Any advice for our readers about life after Trin?

Julia: Don’t hesitate to go after what you really want – there’s no sense in being in a job you don’t really love for the sake of having a job.
