Rishab Jain, material science and engineering student and member of the Model United Nations at Georgia Tech, recently participated in the Jeopardy College Championship. Jain made it to the semifinals, and following his participation in Jeopardy, he decided to read people's tweets about him. He found some mean tweets but rather than get upset, he retweeted them. Jain credited our very own Vince Pedicino, assistant director of the Nunn School of International Affairs graduate programs, for his quick wit in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution article. 

Excerpt

Jain said his “sense of humor, resilience and sarcasm” comes from his friends, family and others, such as his international affairs professor, Vince Pedicino.

“(Pedicino) inspired me to pay no mind to the haters, since he is arguably one of the most sarcastic yet informed people I’ve known,” Jain said.

Thankfully, there were some supportive (or mostly supportive) messages as well. Others loved his tactic of retweeting the negative Nancies instead of letting them bring him down.

Find the article, where Rishab Jain mentions Vince Pedicino on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution website.
