My involvement outside of the classroom has allowed me to pursue one of my passions: events management. I believe I am a strong event coordinator because I am dedicated to raising awareness about issues I care about through fundraising and community outreach.
Many of the student organizations I have worked with allow me to venture out into the community to seek additional partnerships, funding and/or donations toward programs and events. As a result, I have seen these student organizations grow into campus and community leaders that continue to foster community relationships and support its members.
I enjoy being an event coordinator and community outreach personnel because I am able to engage with others and interact with both campus and community members. Through my involvements in events management, I believe I have grown as a student, educator and communications professional. Listed below is my path to community engagement and event coordination:
- All-American High School Film Festival
- IC Asian American Alliance
- IC Society of Professional Journalists
- Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival
- East Coast Asian American Student Union
