Haas School of Business alumna, Melody Akhtari, appeared on the popular televised show “Wheel of Fortune” on March 20, 2014, and went home a champion.

Soon after graduating from Haas School of Business in 2011, Akhtari applied to become a contestant on the competitive word-game show — but the process took over two years before she made her appearance, reported the Daily Californian.

Her earnings from the game amounted to almost $69,000 and a trip to Hawaii.
