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. 



Congratulations to Student Leadership Program Grant recipient, Selamawit Thomas, from the Society chapter at Medgar Evers College.

We are excited to introduce you to Selamawit Thomas, Spring 2015 Student Leadership Program Grant award winner. Selmawit resides in Brooklyn, NY and is a recent graduate of Medgar Evers College.

Jane Tsilova joined the National Office team in August 2015 as a Chapter Support Manager. We are proud to introduce you to a new Society staffer!
 
Jane, tell us a little about yourself.
I’m just another Russian spy for the National Office, building leaders who make a better world! But really, I moved to America as a 7 year old, energized, vivacious and excited about all things related to pizza, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Nintendo and Ninja Turtles! My English as a second language teacher was Spanish, so until the second grade I spoke English with a Spanish accent. I may be from Russia, but I have a fear of the cold. I have tried Octopus in eight different countries, but River Edge, New Jersey still has the most delightful of Octopi. I played on an all-boys soccer and roller hockey team and broke more hockey sticks than the team combined.



We’re excited to announce that The National Society of Leadership and Success reached a monumental milestone over Labor Day weekend!

Meet the Society’s 500,000th member, Emily Rolling!




Anthony V. Martinez, West Point graduate & executive board member for the Society chapter at Texas A&M University-Central Texas, joined Fort Hood’s Warrior Transition Brigade and got involved in a leadership position as a means of healing after the war. This week we would like to share with you a news story about Martinez, by Herald staff writer JC Jones, highlighting how he went from being a lieutenant, captain, commander, and then post-traumatic stress disorder victim to being a peer mentor and a leader who makes a better world.



This week we would like to share a guest post by tutor and blogger, Julia Petersen. Julia has done the research and provided us with ten online resources she feels will take your writing to the next level and just might make it easier along the way.

Christine Pitts joined the National Office team in July 2015 as a Chapter Support Manager. We are proud to introduce you to a new Society staffer!

How would you describe your first month at the National Office, and what is your favorite part of working here so far?

I was told very often during my time as a graduate student that, “your first job will never be your dream job.” Working for the Society is my first job out of graduate school. While it may only be my first month at the National Office, I am fairly confident in stating that the people who told me that were dead wrong. The Society has been fun, exciting, and maybe a little scary, but I think that’s normal with any transition. I have never felt so welcomed and comfortable so quickly in a new position.
