Former Stanford pitcher Sahil Bloom had dreams of playing in the MLB World Series but he has decided to take his career in a much different direction. He recently gave an interview to WickedLocal.com where he discussed how Stanford changed his life goals.
Not many people can claim a former Secretary of State as their advisor.
But recent Stanford University graduate and Weston High School alum Sahil Bloom can.
“The coolest experience I had at Stanford was definitely the opportunity to have former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice serve as my advisor for my Master’s degree,” Bloom said. “She is an amazingly intelligent woman and someone whose work ethic I admire very much. It was an absolute high to be around her and learn from her experiences as well as get her thoughts on my path moving forward.”
With Rice in his right ear, Bloom recently earned his Master’s degree in Public Policy and is now set to move on from the Stanford classrooms, and baseball diamonds, and into a role as an analyst at a private equity fund in the San Francisco Bay area.
“I am really excited to be a part of a new team and soak up the new environment and knowledge that comes with it,” Bloom said. “As for a longer-term plan, I hope to one day leverage my Public Policy background and run for office.”
