Andrew Mahabir summarized Ascend’s student chapter accomplishments in 2010.
has been a great year for Ascend’s student chapters in the Metro New York Area.
The students continue to work hard to deliver quality events on campus, and
this has translated to large membership growth at many of the 11 student
chapters in the Metro New York Area. For example, the Rutgers Newark chapter
has added approximately 50 new student members this semester alone! Some of
these events driving this growth include:
and Being a Leader
Featuring Guest Speaker Kevin Kim, Deputy Director of
Community Affairs, and close runner-up in the 2009 NYC council election in the
19thDistrict in Queens New York. Mr. Kim shared his
insight with the students about being a leader in the Asian community. In
addition, he spoke to the students about how they too can become leaders, and
the qualities needed to get there.
Featuring Guest Speaker Samuel Mok, Former CFO of the U.S.
Department of Labor, and Ascend National Advisory Board Member. Mr. Mok spoke
to the students about the importance of paying attention to the details, how to
build connections, and the importance of maintaining connections.
these are just two examples, the Ascend student chapters of Metro New York have
worked tirelessly to provide their respective student bodies with a wide
variety of events including Dinning Etiquette workshops, Excel Workshops, and a
variety of professional panel presentations.
2010 has been a tremendous year for Ascend Metro New York student chapters, we
look forward to continued growth and development in 2011!
