Grand Prize Winner: David Salon

The winning essay, written by Sophia Tedder, a stylist at David Salon portrayed Millennium as a ‘significant other’ in a realistic way. Here’s an excerpt:


“I came to the desperate realization that I have been in a dead end relationship for far too long. A partnership that is gradually sucking the life out of me transaction by transaction. I have been trapped by years of unfulfilled promises and nonexistent updates. I am being left in the dust while others I know are swept of their feet by sexy, savvy technology. I want to be swept away too. I want to be swept away by Millennium...”


“I’d visit his site every few days to check him out. Watching his demos. Trying to find a flaw. I observed Millennium’s numerous powerful qualities. He wasn’t bashful to boast his strength and reliability. He knew what I needed...”


“You can tell Sophia put a lot of effort into her essay. She came out to ISSE in January, met with my staff and had a great experience. She realized that Millennium will provide the tools she needs for continued growth and success,” says President John Harms.
