The life of Valley Catholic alumna Seema Mody has changed quite a bit since she graduated after 13 years at Valley Catholic. On Nov. 26, the CNBC reporter spent the day sharing her journey with Valley Catholic students.
After Seema graduated from Valley Catholic School, she attended the University of Washington, where she received a bachelor’s degree in biology. However, she discovered that being a doctor was not her calling, and after working for a time at a health care consulting company, Seema set her sights on journalism. She received her first break working at CNBC-TV18 in Mumbai, India. After two years working as an anchor and reporter there, Seema began working at CNBC in New York City, where she currently works as a reporter. Seema reports daily on topics ranging from reports on Wall Street to the daily news.
Valley Catholic Students were thrilled to meet a national reporter. Their questions ranged from the current price of a share in Apple (a story she recently reported) to whether she gets worried she will say something wrong on air. Seema left Valley Catholic students with the charge to “take advantage of the resources you have here,” and to “invest in yourself.” It is a gift to have alumni like Seema on campus to share their journey.
