Jessica Santana, a 2011 Whitman alumnus who also earned a graduate degree at Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies (iSchool) in 2013, was included in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 for Education. She co-created New York On Tech, a nonprofit organization that provides pathways for underrepresented New York City high school students into the field of technology. New York on Tech co-creator and fellow Syracuse University alumna Evin Robinson ’12, G ’14 was also included on the list. (pictured left to right: Robinson and Santana)
Ross Burack (pictured left) is listed among Forbes’ 30 Under 30 for Food and Drink. He graduated from Whitman with a degree in entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises in 2011. As detailed in his Forbes’ feature, Burack was working in Manhattan in commercial real estate leasing and noticed that fast-casual restaurants were leasing a significant number of spaces. This realization and his aspiration of opening something with a Mexican flare fueled the creation of Choza. Today, there are four Choza locations in the city.
