What LIU Promise Means to Me
LIU Promise is a commitment between a Success Coach and the student. I am committed to providing an endless amount of help, guidance, and support to ensure that every student succeeds. I want to foster independence but also ensure that every student feels that they have someone in their corner, not only rooting for them but empowering them to be successful even after they graduate from LIU.
This is the responsibility of a success coach but not without the commitment from each student. My favorite part is having the opportunity to connect with students not only in my office but around campus as well. I love to see students in other roles, whether at an event, a club meeting, or with their friends. It brings a whole new dimension to the relationship we share.
Definition of Success
I measure success by my job, with my family, friends and throughout my personal life. I am accomplishing my goals every day, and I want to assist my students to do the same.
Taking Pride in a Promise
My proudest moments have been learning how talented my students are. Some are writing for The Pioneer, others love to sing and upload amazing videos on YouTube, and many more are already active members of clubs and organizations on campus. I am most proud knowing that my students are getting involved and earning a name for themselves!
There are so many great movies out there … two that come to mind are Big Fish and Dan in Real Life.
