Favorite memory from the School of Leadership Studies? One of my favorite memories was from Culture and Context. We were challenged to do a project on a subculture. The team I was on decided to learn about the gothic subculture. In order to conduct our research we decided to do an ethnographic study and actually dressed up "goth" and ventured out into the Manhattan community. It turned out to be an amazing project for two reasons First, it taught me to really put myself in another's shoes and view life from alternate perspectives and second, it taught me to think outside of the box when working on a project whether that be for school, work, or in general. Creativity is key!
What you are looking forward to the most from this organization? I am really looking forward to helping our alumni reconnect with the School of Leadership Studies and see how much more amazing it has become.
What expectations do you have in regards to the alumni advisory committee (AAC)? My expectations are that we are Committed to our mission and goals, we Communicate clearly and often, and we are Creative and not afraid to think outside of the box.Anything else you would like to share: I am honored to work with each one of you and can’t wait to get started!
