HESA Treasurer Candidate
ALB Candidate

My fellow Harvard Extension students, four things are expected from a Treasurer. First, they must deliver regular reports of the budget. Second, they must prepare a year-end financial summary. Third, they must advise in regard to the distribution of funds to member clubs. Lastly, they must assist clubs with paperwork and related procedures.

I was once asked to organize the household of a Swiss Count and Countess. The household had several maids, three nannies a cook and a dog. Subsequently, the keys to the golf cart, cars, and house fell into my hands, and the Count and his Countess left. The parents of three young children departed and did not return for three months.

ALB Candidate

Several years ago, I was hired to work in the mail-room at a small company in Westford, MA called Iris Associates. My first day on the job the CEO introduced himself to me, shook my hand and asked, ”What can I do to help you?” The lesson I learned that day was that a good leader makes his employees feel like an important part of the team.

I am interested in the role of Vice President because I remember taking the HESA Autumn 2016 survey, and filling each question with essay-length answers about my hopes and wishes for my Harvard experience. I don’t want to be the person who only sits on their couch and idly chats - I want to roll up my sleeves and contribute.

HESA Presidential Candidate
ALB Candidate

In second grade, my teacher asked our class to write what we wanted to be when we all grew up. It was a difficult question, mostly because I was a second grader. But what I came up with has since inspired me to work toward bringing people and ideas together. “President of the United States” is what I wrote. And that dream is why I wish to be the next president of HESA.
