The National Society of Leadership and Success
Building leaders who make a better world

On November 19th, 2015, the Society chapter at St. Ambrose University was featured on the 10:00PM local news in Davenport, IA. Society members worked together at the Humility of Mary Shelter, making holiday cards and care packages for veterans as well as assembling special gifts for children in the local foster care system. In the KWCQ TV 6 clip below, St. Ambrose University Chapter President, Briana Carlson-Morales discusses their partnership with Together We Rise, an organization dedicated to changing the foster care experience for kids in the United States.

Brian Chamberlin joined the National Office in August 2014 as a Senior Bookkeeper.
 
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.

Mitali Mehta joined the National Office team in July 2014 as a Software Developer.               
We are proud to introduce you to another Society staffer!
 
Mitali, tell us a little about yourself.
 
I am a software developer by profession, but that was not the reason I moved to the US. I moved for my personal growth. I got married to an Indian guy who moved to the United States five years back and I joined him here. I never dreamed about being settled in a country other than India, but I think it was my fate. 



Last week we shared the first of a three-piece segment highlighting Pennsylvania State University chapter member Julia Carter on her Society-sponsored study abroad trip to Panama. Today, we’re happy to share part two of her journey. Enjoy!

On Tuesday, October 6th, 2015, the Society kicked-off its Speaker Broadcast Series for the fall semester with America’s favorite weatherman, Al Roker.  The event took place at New Jersey City University and was streamed live to the Society’s 500 chapters across the country, but what most didn’t know, was that the event almost didn’t happen.
