Hey Henry. Check this out. Remember Sara, the girl who used to sit with you in the hospital and clinic at Georgetown. I wrote you a long time ago to give you an update on her when she was still in school.
Well she is on TV now and they wrote about her in the newspaper today.

The Look of the 'Next Top Model'?
For more than two decades, David Bradley 's Advisory Board Co. has been the D.C. destination for Ivy Leaguers and other smart young things -- an intellectual boot camp that pushes its whiz kids to their limits while molding them for leadership in corporate America.
Yeah, but can it show 'em how to turn it out on the runway? A young Advisory Board researcher has emerged as an early favorite on high-camp reality show "America's Next Top Model." Sara Albert , 22, a recent Georgetown grad, was shopping at Pentagon City last summer when a casting agent spotted her willowy blondness. She made the cut as one of the 13 top contestants; on last week's premiere, she turned heads.
"This is fierce !," judge Jay Manuel exclaimed as Albert posed in a bald cap (then warned another model: "That [bad girl] turned it out, so you better represent "). Judge J. Alexander proclaimed her "my 6-foot-1 Scarlett Johansson !" though Hoya Web sites put the former volleyball star at 6-3.
Yet, Albert still has her day job. A bad sign? "I'm not allowed to do any sort of press until after the show," she said.
Here is her page from the TV show. I really hope she does well. Isn't that something!
