Photographer-Public Relations Committee Member, Association for Information Systems

Fall 2016-present

The Association for Information Systems is a student professional development organization. In AIS, members have the chance to gain both professional and technical knowledge by attending speaker series, professional development workshops, and technical workshops. My role as a photographer for AIS has allowed me to network with my fellow classmates, professors, and business professionals, while also providing content for AIS’s re-branding purposes.

Vice President, Ambler Student Government Association

Fall 2014-Spring 2015

While I was still a landscape architecture student at Temple University Ambler, I served as the vice president of the Student Government there. As a new freshman, I was hesitant to take on a large responsibility, but I’m glad that I did. In this role, I was able to gain valuable experience leading, collaborating, and working with both faculty and students.

Responsibilities included:

  • coordinating American Red Cross Blood Drive
  • organizing fundraisers for March of Dimes and for Mattie Dixon Food Cupboard
  • assisting president in leading weekly meetings with faculty and student leaders

Community Service

Temple University Service Immersion Trip to El Cidral, Dominican Republic

Spring 2016

Last spring I participated in a service immersion program through Temple University. We spent one week in El Cidral, Dominican Republic, learning about the culture and helping to build a computer lab at a local elementary school. This was one of the most eye opening experiences of my life. By physically going to another country and learning about people’s experiences there, I have expanded my perspective on poverty, education, and community development. I hope to volunteer abroad again this year, with an organization called Global Brigades.
