Viral Video: Yes, the “Highly Educated” Metro-North Ranter Works in Finance

If you happen to work in an office-cubicle-y type of environment, you’ve likely had the following video forwarded to you at least once this afternoon (see video below). In it, an irate 20s-ish Metro-North rail rider verbally spars with a public transit worker, who was apparently asking her not to curse so loudly. In the video she cries indignantly, “Do you know what schools I’ve been to?!” and “Do you know how well-educated I am!?”
Over here at Mogulite, we immediately began speculating over which schools and exactly what kind of career would instill such a, umm, profound sense of entitlement.
Well, it looks like the folks over at Dealbreaker uncovered her identity. And yes, she works in finance. But no, she didn’t go to an Ivy League school.
The woman in question is named Hermon Raju and she’s an employee at BNP Paribas, according to Dealbreaker. According to her (lapsed) LinkedIn profile (which she’s taken down, but we found in web cache), both her undergrad and graduate degrees are from NYU (Politics for undergrad, Finance and Marketing for grad).
Now that that’s cleared up, let’s roll the tape!
