Welcome the August class of Praxis Participants!

Josiah Brown

Fun fact

I love the outdoors. So much so my friend and I got chased by a buck in the dark while out backpacking! I suppose we chose the wrong spot to set up camp.

What are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about breaking away from the average college routine. I want to show my friends and family what I can do without a piece of paper saying I memorized it.

Dalton Haberman

Fun fact

I’ve been playing disc golf for 10 years. I’ve met the best players in the world, and my best score is 2 under par!

What are you most excited about?

I’m most excited to explore new and exciting Operations roles in the startup world.

Spencer Nguyen

Fun fact

I was able to watch a SpaceX rocket launch in-person at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

What are you most excited about?

I’m looking forward to approaching the new challenges Praxis is offering and breaking away from the standard mindset and motivation of college rather than conforming and following the crowd.

Charlotte Toumanoff

Fun fact

I used to be in academia! It took me eight long years, three leaves of absence, two study abroads at University of Oxford and University of Cambridge, countless mysterious smells in the coed bathrooms, and a lot of anxiety and imposter syndrome to finally graduate cum laude from UPenn with a B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies. Now, I’m chasing after my dreams by running my own photography business (https://www.instagram.com/toumanoffphotography), and working to become a published author.

What are you most excited about?

I am most excited to START! Let’s go!
