“I am grateful that mPharma is being recognized for the achievements that my colleagues have all worked very hard to realize,” Finucane said.

We're hoping the added visibility will help us to continue pulling Africa’s best talent into our ranks.”
The trio joins a growing number of Conn alums who have appeared on the 30 Under 30 list. Jazmine Hughes ’12, Aditi Juneja ’12 and Emily Callahan ’11 were named to Forbes 30 Under 30 for 2018. The three Conn alumni featured work in the media, law and policy, and energy industries.
Molly Hayward ’10 was recognized in 2017 for founding the innovative startup company, Cora, and made the list in 2013 in the law and policy category for her work as an advocate for immigrant youth and victims of child trafficking.
Each year, Forbes selects its 30 Under 30 winners from more than 10,000 nominees in the United States, Europe and Asia. The recognition of these three Connecticut College graduates in the same year is representative of the outsized impact Conn's alums are having in a wide range of fields. The College had more alumni named to the Forbes list than any of its NESCAC peers.
