Margo Lang ’10

“Everyone at my school was ridiculously driven,” Margo Lang ’10 tells a reporter in her hometown of Manhattan Beach, California. While her Yale College classmates wanted to work on Wall Street or as “high-powered attorneys,” Lang was “stereotyped as the do-good hippie” who taught yoga, co-chaired a cancer fund-raiser, and wrote about the plight of the uninsured.

But you don’t get into—or out of—Yale without being a bit driven yourself. Arriving home after graduation with “bazillions” of job applications but no job, Lang dived into more do-gooder work. On November 14, she helped organize LA Gives Love, a yoga-and-vegetarian-food extravaganza that raised money for actress Patricia Arquette’s Haitian relief organization, Give Love. And Lang has landed a paid position—with a start-up company that aims to bring call-center jobs home from overseas, and train disabled vets and battered women to fill them.
