Get Involved

I remember feeling very lost after F5. And I wasn’t sure who to ask…

My dad wanted me to be an engineer but I didn’t even know what an engineer did…

 

If you remember feeling that way, and would like to help students, you’re in the right place. This AAN project is less than a year old, but what we have found is that

 

  • Storytelling is powerful. When you tell your story with such honesty and openness, like some alumni have done, you make yourself vulnerable. But it is this vulnerability that sets the stage for the building of strong, meaningful and lasting relationships.
  • Knowledge is worth sharing. Because knowledge is empowering. Because the more you know, the more informed your decision will be. And because knowledge should be accessible to everyone, regardless of socioeconomic status. 
  • Social media has made information sharing very easy and inexpensive. By changing the way we share, view and seek information, social media has made “leveling the playing field” that much more possible.
  • This means that you can have a positive impact on someone’s life, by doing very simple things like telling your story or answering questions about your professional or educational experience.


Never underestimate how powerful your tale can be. Similarly,
never underestimate the change you may effect,
even though it may be (in your eyes) a single data point.

Our strength is in our diversity.
Together, we are greater than the sum of our parts.
