Alumni in the News: January 11

On January 10, The New York Times published Julie Satow ’96, SIPA’01’s essay “She Was a Star of New York Real Estate, but Her Life Story Was a Lie,” a look at how Satow and other journalists were fooled by the invented backstory of real estate big shot Faith Hope Consolo.

Patricia Granda-Malaver ’20 was featured in the January 4 New York Times article “Phone Calls, Texts and Tinder — Georgia Campaigns Court Young Voters.” Granda-Malaver was quoted talking about the importance of the Georgia run-off Senate races, and discusses her work with phone banks and her in-person efforts to increase voting enthusiasm.
