Meet the Team
The idea of being selfless and giving has always appealed to me. Even when things got rough, I wanted to be someone who brought light into another person’s life. I love the idea of helping others, making people smile, and possibly impacting another person’s life in both the smallest and largest ways. Joining ARK gave me the chance to do all these things and more. Being a part of ARK has given me the incredible opportunity to meet so many great people and gain a variety of unforgettable experiences. For this upcoming year, I am incredibly grateful to be working with Lily Li as your ARK coordinators. So as your friend, possible new friend, and coordinator, I can’t wait for us to spARK more light in the world.
As a child, my dream has always been to change the world. And ever since I joined ARK three years ago, I’ve been able to scratch the surface of my dream by bring kind and bringing smiles, laughter, and surprise to others, by giving people hope and motivation to preserve, and by starting snowball effects of kindness. With ARK, I can make a difference in someone’s day and it costs me nothing at all. This year, I am so honored to serve as co-coordinator alongside Sally Nguyen and hopefully change the world! After all, “its the little things that count”.
“Kindness in words creates confidence, Kindness in thinking creates profoundness, and Kindness in giving creates love." -Lao Tzu
Kindness comes in all different shapes and sizes and I have learned to appreciate all of them. I've always loved reaching out to the community, helping others that are in need, and giving kindness, those are the moments when I'm the happiest person on earth. ARK has given me the opportunity to do those things and I'm forever grateful and thankful. Everyone has someone or something that has made a big impact on their lives and this is mine. I love what I do and I will make every second bit of it count! As your 2017-2018 Secretary, I'm deeply honored to work alongside these brilliant minds and talented individuals, while inspiring others!
The act of being kind has always been a part of my life, and it’s something that I value as I go about my daily life. Inevitably, when I walk down the streets in my hometown, someone I walk past will be going through a tough time, but if I can lessen that hardship, I should. A simple, friendly smile goes a long way, so I’ve always tried to give what I can to others. Ultimately, my beliefs all go back to the idea that we should all look out for each other. We should all make our lives that much more beautiful, which is something that I love that ARK promotes. ARK continues to be such an inspiration for me to open my heart and see good in everyone, and I am so thankful that it is a part of my life. For the 2017-2018 year, I’m incredibly excited to be your ARK Council Treasurer. I look forward to working with each and every one of you to make ARK even better than it already is!
ARK has impacted my life in so many ways. It has introduced me to new friendships, experiences, and memories. Ever since I joined ARK freshman year, I noticed that I have incorporated kindness in my daily lifestyle. Most of the time, I find myself holding doors for people at school, bringing food for my friends, complimenting strangers in the halls, being more mindful to the people around me and so much more. My love for this club has only grown over these past years and I can’t wait to share my love for kindness with everyone. ARK has engraved the saying “it’s the little things that count” in my heARK. As your 2017-2018 co-media coordinator, I cannot wait to work with my fellow council members and other ARK clubs to engrave that saying in other people’s heARKs too.
Being part of ARK the past few years has showed me how to incorporate little things to make someone else's day worth it. I love seeing people smile because of someone else's kind actions. No matter how small or big a selfless action is could make a person's day. Not only has ARK taught me to become more selfless but it had helped me create life-long friendships, opportunities, and memories! My love for ARK has grown throughout the years and will continue to grow with this next term! I am thrilled to be working along side Mae as your Co-Media Chair and can not wait to see what is in store for this year!!!
