University Assistant Director – it still sounds and feels as if I should be addressing someone else by that title. My journey to this position cannot be properly explained in one or two paragraphs, but I will say that I am wholeheartedly grateful, pleased and humbled by the experience and I am looking forward to achieving new milestones for our students and colleagues. In the short time, I’ve been on board, I’ve gained a whole new appreciation for CUNY BMI as a whole. Everything our Director Shawn Best does and the everyday efforts of our project directors and coordinators is unequivocally for the betterment of our student’s academic and professional lives. Having the opportunity to visit multiple BMI campus projects, seeing how our students rise to and achieve, noting the project director’s individual gleam of pride for their students – all of those things are what fuel me every day to do more and do better for those depending and growing through BMI.
