My sister, Stephanie, got to ring the NYSE opening bell on Monday because of her involvement in an MTV program called, Movers and Changers. The short of it is that her and some other students developed a disposable umbilical cord cutter for use in developing nations. Movers and Changers is a yearly contest for students to enter their products/service ideas related to making a difference in the world. Because of her product getting selected as a finalist she gets to be part of a couple TV episodes and also got to “ring the bell” at the NYSE. My description doesn’t really do it justice, ask her or see the website for more details.
