Sandy Chin Reading Program

Sandy Chin works at Tidal Bore Capital as the Chief Investment Officer. Sandy Chin is also the Portfolio Manager at the company. The company’s headquarters are in New York. Before joining Tidal Bore Capital, she used to work for Visium Asset Management, LLC. She was also a Portfolio Manager there who majored in pharmaceutical stocks. She has had different positions in various companies and firms. These include Neuberger Berman LLC where she was the Vice President, S.A.C Capital Management where she was the Senior Analyst, and the Donaldson Lufkin and Jenrette International where she was also an Analyst. These positions have helped her widen her experience and knowledge. She has slowly become successful through hard work and determination. She is also very passionate about what she does and never fails to impress.


Sandy Chin recently came across PS11 which was experiencing problems providing learning equipment to its students. Located in the city of New York, PS11 is an elementary school that is public. The school is known for its service to the different groups of students including those from families that are not very stable. Summer was approaching, and the students needed studying materials to use over the holidays, but not all the families were able to provide these. Sandy Chin came aboard and found a solution. She arranged a brook drive together with some volunteers. The drive took place at PS11, and the aim was to gather books that were no longer being used by their owners and give them to the kids at the elementary school. The drive was named Books, Boxes & Bodies and took place between the 19th and 20th of June.


The response was overwhelming. Many people turned up to donate books, and Sandy ended up collecting over three thousand books. Many people were eager to donate their books to help the kids. In the end, each kindergarten kid was able to take home a couple of books with them. Students from other grades also accessed the books. Most students end up forgetting what they were taught during long holidays such as the summer. This is because some don’t have access to reading materials while others just don’t have anyone to encourage them. Chin was trying to avoid this, and the drive was very successful in the end.


Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, The Chainsmokers, Discuss Future Shows & Halsey

The Chainsmokers achieved mainstream success with their breakthrough song “#Selfie” in 2014. The group is a duo made up of producer/DJ combo Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. They released an EP near the end of 2015, but it wasn’t until 2017 when their first album Memories…Do Not Open was released. Even though The Chainsmokers have released full length projects, their normal schedule of music releases is more unorthodox. The Chainsmokers are most well known for releasing singles randomly.

In an interview conducted by Interview Magazine, The Chainsmokers discussed working with Halsey, Andrew Taggart’s singing career, and more.

“That’s the kind of artists we like to work with,” said Alex Pall in regards to Halsey, the featured singer on the song “Closer.” “She has a very strong voice,” Pall confirmed. Pall went on to call Halsey incredible; Alex Pall said that over the last year, Halsey was one of the singers they were looking most forward to working with.

Andrew Taggart wrote “Closer,” but for the first time ever, Andrew Taggart stepped up to the microphone. The Chainsmokers, even though they haven’t previously sang on their own songs, write their own vocals. They usually have a different singer perform the vocals, but all of the songs from The Chainsmokers are written from personal events.

The Chainsmokers’ previous hits are “#Selfie,” “Roses,” and a handful more. The Chainsmokers have so many hit songs under their resume, it seems as though the group has been producing music for a decade. It is hard to believe The Chainsmokers have only been an active group for less than 5 years.

Now that Andrew Taggart is also singing and not just producing, The Chainsmokers have been forced to redesign their live shows. The Chainsmokers have circulated the idea of mixing video packages into their show, but the biggest change to the live show is when Andrew Taggart steps behind the microphone. Taggart stepping out from behind the production table has resulted in a dynamic change to the show.
