Bruce, Lindsay

Lindsay Bruce ’10 made appearances on this season's NBC reality show The Voice.

Her early accomplishments helped set her on a path that led to an appearance on “The Voice,” but it was a long, sometimes difficult journey. At 13, the Santa Rosa native wrote a book and a song about having lost her uncle on 9/11. In high school, she became an international model and local celebrity. All along, though, she wanted to write and sing her own songs, so after graduating from Santa Clara University, Bruce headed to Nashville to pursue the one dream that still eluded her.

But for Bruce, the journey was a humbling experience. She was a struggling songwriter in a town where everybody is a struggling songwriter. For five years, Bruce developed her craft, learned what she could and performed in nearly empty halls. Always optimistic, though, she pressed on. A break came after three years in Nashville and at the very moment she was thinking of giving up on Music City once and for all.
 
“It was kind of a perfect storm of bad things,” said the 25-year-old who made it onto one of the celebrity team's on The Voice, where singers compete for a recording contract. “My landlord was selling the house, my roommate was moving, the production contract I had was expiring and my job ended. I was basically getting ready to move back home.”
 
In one of the crazier turns of her young life, she ended up auditioning for “The Voice” coaches on TV in front of thousands of people. Her journey to that point made her feel that she had nothing to lose.

Alvarado, Ron
Ron Alvarado ’10 and Matt McDonald ’10 have launched Ficks, a "cocktail fortifier" that includes electrolytes, amino acids, and other goodies like milk thistle that are said to help keep the morning after from being a total nightmare. Think of it as a smoothie boost for your vodka tonic.
 
They came up with the idea while in college (where else?) and reached out to an organic and natural foods lab to create Ficks using natural ingredients and another company that makes the vitamin blend that goes into Vitamin Water. The pair launched an IndieGoGo campaign in October.

Akins Jr., Thomas

Thomas Akins Jr. ’10 came up with the idea for the mobile app called podStatus, a music player that takes a stab at music discovery for frequent Instagram users (and other social networks) who have songs on their iPhone to share music for friends to listen and discover. He writes that no other app brings this level of music discovery to Instagram where users can actually listen to the music. It also has an algorithm that only makes music suggestions based on what users already have in their music library and are listening to right in that moment.

Boniface, Brooke

Brooke Boniface ’11 is Santa Clara's new class giving officer in University Relations. Brooke graduated magna cum laude from Santa Clara in just three years with a double major in Political Science and History. She was obviously an incredible student and has already supported our office’s efforts greatly through her student job in the call center, where she ranked No. 1 in credit card rates her first year and had an unbelievable 99 percent fulfillment rate during her second year. We also had the opportunity to feature her student story in an annual fund piece during her senior year, so several of you will recognize her face. In her “spare time”, she also served as Opinions Editor for The Santa Clara student newspaper. Following her undergraduate degree from Santa Clara, Brooke served in Teach for America for two years in Phoenix. Most recent, she was tremendously successful as an ad sales rep for Yelp.  We are incredibly happy that she is coming back home to Santa Clara to join our Reunion Fundraising team.
