Omaha! Omaha! The last week of January, 20 lucky UC Davis Graduate School of Management students jetted off to Omaha, Nebraska to meet the Oracle himself. It all started unassumingly enough with an email solicitation sent to all GSM students to enter a lottery to meet and have lunch with Warren Buffett.
It’s strange how little moments can so drastically affect your future. I was a young lad at the tender age of 12 and I had just finished reading Jurassic Park (It would be the first time I could say “Yeah but the book was better”).

In July, my husband and I are expecting to welcome our first child into the world. Of course, as first time parents, we have lots of questions—from wondering which car seat is the safest to what to expect in those first few months of having a newborn.
This Thursday, January 30, 20 lucky students from the UC Davis Graduate School of Management (GSM) will fly to Omaha, Neb., to meet one of the wealthiest and most influential men in business: Mr. Warren Buffett. As a first-year student in the Sacramento Part-Time MBA program, I am very fortunate to have this grand opportunity to meet one of the most successful businessmen in history.
The first quarter of our first year at the GSM is behind us. And thank goodness! It was a struggle to remember what it was like to be a student, and even more of a struggle to fight that persistent desire to procrastinate. Watching football is a good use of my time, right? Well, yes… and that is what I had to learn. Balance.
