Sometime this past summer my dear friend and occasional work colleague Meesh (who also writes this wonderful blog) asked me if I was available to help her on the tech committee for the Momentum 2020 Planning Committee. Meesh, ever always the leader, is the co-chair on this committee.
I, of course, was eager to jump on board as I love helping Wharton and Penn, but reminded her that I lived in Portugal.
Her response? “That’s even better!”
So, in early September, the University of Pennsylvania alumni relations staff team kicked off our volunteer efforts for Momentum 2020: The Power of Penn Women, a three-day conference planned for October 2-4, 2020 that will gather University of Pennsylvania women from all backgrounds and generations to learn, connect, and share how we are making an impact in our communities and the world. Confirmed speakers include Dr. Amy Gutmann, Angela Duckworth G’03, GR’06, Stacey Snider C’82, and Abby Huntsman C’09.
Anyway, as part of the tech committee’s initiative, we created a podcast! The Momentum 2020 is a podcast featuring alumnae from the University of Pennsylvania with a new interview dropping every Monday.
This has been such a fun project for me! As one of the podcast hosts, I’ve been able to interview both Meesh and Erica Firpo, our two incredibly talented Tech committee co-chairs, but I’ve also spoken to many of my amazing classmates about their life after Penn. Their podcasts are in the can and set to go live and I will let you know when they do.
Plus, if you haven’t already heard, Meesh also interviewed me! My podcast interview is here: https://pennmomentum.libsyn.com/tricia-buenvenida-wg-99-oc-housewifes-ghost-writer. Take a listen if you want to hear how Penn and Wharton have influenced my life, my life in Portugal with my family, how I combat Imposter Syndrome, and more!
If you can’t get enough of listening to all these fantastic women, subscribe to the Momentum 2020 podcast which features weekly interviews with transformational alumnae spanning multiple generations, numerous fields, and varied perspectives.
