Join us for the ULCC Entrepreneur Group Meeting on November 25th, featuring Hanna Stotland

Please join the Union League Club Entrepreneur Group, chaired by David Lynam, for our next monthly meeting on November 25th at 6PM, featuring speaker and entrepreneur Hanna Stotland. Hanna has a story you will not want to miss.

Hanna may be the only high school dropout to go from working a minimum wage job to graduating with a J.D from Harvard Law.

Hanna flunked out of high school and began working full time for minimum wage on her 18th birthday. After two years working as a museum guide, a freelance caterer, and an Omnimax projectionist, she decided to return to the academic path. She entered Bryn Mawr College, excelled academically, and transferred to Harvard College. There, she joined the Harvard College Office of Admissions as a student guide and began to offer volunteer advice on admissions sites. Before long, families began to seek her professional counsel, and she started a consulting counseling business while still in college.

Following her graduation from Harvard College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Hanna received her J.D. degree from Harvard Law School. She completed two federal judicial clerkships and went on to Big Law in Chicago, but left legal practice in 2008 to become a full-time career and educational counselor. She is based in Chicago, and works with client families nationwide. She enjoys supplementing her counseling work with pro bono work on behalf of underprivileged youth. She is a frequent speaker at high school career days and community events encouraging young people to reach for college.

Hanna’s unique experience as a former troubled teen who overcame her mistakes gives her unusual sensitivity to the challenges young people face.

Hanna will share personal anecdotes about her amazing personal, journey, and of her entrepreneurial drive and spirit.

The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m.

Also, feel free to bring business cards. Following the meeting, libations and lively discussion will continue into the Rendezvous on the 4th floor. Advance reservations are strongly encouraged. There is no charge to attend the event, but members will sign for food and beverages.
