In February, Alice Lee got her first taste of viral fame.The UPenn student skipped four classes to create an amazing resume/website called Dear Instagram – With Love, Alice.

Lee spent 2.5 days building and designing the resume site, during which time she subsisted on bowls of ramen noodles.

A marketing major, she previously took a semester off to work for Foursquare. She has also interned at Microsoft.

The tech community was impressed by her creativity and motivation. Instagram investor Chris Sacca tweeted: “I’ve never met @byalicelee.┬áBut, when I see hustle like this, I am sure I will, eventually.”

Sites like Business Insider, The Atlantic and The Next Web wrote about her resume.

We got back in touch with Lee last month and asked her what happened after Dear Instagram. She says she wasn’t offered a position at that startup, but did speak with Kevin Systrom, Instagram’s cofounder and CEO, on the phone.

It did lead to an internship with Path, however.

She writes via email:

Instagram did reach out and that was very kind of them but at the time they weren’t hiring for interns (and I suspect that other events had complicated this (ie. their latest round of financing, acquisition talks(?), etc). But they were very kind and I even got to chat on the phone with Kevin for a little bit.

The site, however, brought me some attention from other folks in the Valley and after interviewing around, I’ve accepted a very cool biz internship at Path for the summer. Super excited, because I was *this* close to making “Dear Path” originally.

Congrats Alice! You seem like a very big win for Path.
