In September at Verve Coffee on University I happened to meet parents of a Stanford freshman. They volunteered the fact that their child was 26 not 18 and the former first soloist of the London Ballet. Stanford and the search engines added her actual name: Beatriz Stix-Brunell.
I checked with Aleta Hayes of Chocolate Heads to confirm that she had not joined a local outfit, even to work on her hip hops. But her social media accounts seem to confirm that indeed she walks among us. Or floats. Seems to float.
I wonder if the Olympic trick skier from San Francisco is here or did she endow her own project with her millions in earnings. Is it Eileen Gu?
