Brian, please tell us a little about yourself. 
Pittsburgh born, Florida raised, youngest of three and uncle to six. I moved to New York City with my fiancé, Charlie, almost seven years ago and love it here. I love animals. I’m extremely close with my family and usually spend one weekend per month in Florida with them. 
 



On Wednesday, November 4th, Oscar-nominated actor Jesse Eisenberg visited New Jersey City University to speak with the Society in a Live Speaker Broadcast hosted by SiriusXM “Morning Mash Up” personality, Nicole Ryan.
 
Jesse shared his journey from anthropology student to actor with the humor and nervous energy we come to expect from him.  Society members from all over the nation loved every minute of the broadcast, as the advice he gave was not only uplifting and inspiring to the young generation of college students, it was also quite relatable.  Viewers engaged on social media by sharing their favorite #JesseEisenberg quotes and one-liners. 



Congratulations to “Dream Support Grant” recipient, Octavia Romano, from the Society chapter at The City College of New York.
 
Octavia Romano was inducted into The National Society of Leadership and Success in the Spring of 2014 and graduated from The City College of New York in February 2015. In January of 2011, Octavia came to New York from Argentina as a transfer student to complete her studies in Music Composition. Over the past few years, she has had the opportunity and privilege of studying with great teachers, particularly with Pulitzer Prize winning composer and professor, David Del Tredici.  During this time, she wrote several pieces for different chamber ensembles, including string quartet, and was given the opportunity to have some of that music performed at university recitals and concerts.



This guest post is the last of a three-part series highlighting Pennsylvania State University chapter member Julia Carter on her Society-sponsored study abroad trip to Panama. We hope you enjoyed reading about her journey as much as we did.
