Me Hitting the Airwaves

I was interviewed today with Kim Stezala, The Scholarship Lady, on her BlogTalk Radio cast regarding Zinch--who we are and what we are up to.

It is always interesting to hear how others sum up Zinch and I think Kim did a terrific job with it. Here is the intro that Kim gives Zinch:

"Wouldn't it be great if you could share your fabulous factor with 600 colleges and let them vie for your attention? College-bound students have a new tool in their quest for finding their dream college - it's Zinch.com. The brainchild of a Princeton student, Zinch allows students to prove they are "more than a test score" and allows colleges to check out nearly half a million students - all online. It's a beautiful thing. Listen in as The Scholarship Lady chats with Dave Blake, Director of Student Finance at Zinch.com"

You can listen to the podcast by going to Kim's BlogTalk Radio station. Enjoy!

Dreams Yet Future

  Dreams yet future
  Can weigh at one's soul
  That which is hoped and aspired
  And left un'tained
  Will yearn
  Then fade
  Yet all dream
  All hope
  But few obtain
  And the worlds is left to its yearning
  Only a few fight
  To live the life they dreamed
  Of stars bright and that happy life
  Against the gravity of our souls
  For dreams are sent from heaven's gate
  And one must fly to obtain
  Determined to fight I resolve
  My dreams to succeed
  My hopes to evolve
  'Till with Wrights' and Lindbergh's
  My name shall fall
  And amongst the stars I sleep
- David Blake, 2005
