Leading the Columbia Pre-Law Society over the last two years—as Co-President (2014-15) and then President (2015-16)—has truly been one of the best experiences of my life.
This club has been my “baby,” and it has been incredibly rewarding to see it grow over the last two years: e.g. our Facebook engagement has increased 5-fold and we’ve tripled the number of events that we run on campus annually!
Our achievements have only been possible because of our amazing people, and I have nothing but praise for my teammates at the Columbia Pre-Law Society—I couldn’t have asked for more competent or committed colleagues and friends.
Therefore, it is with great pleasure that I’d like to introduce your new student leaders for 2016-17:
- Co-Presidents: Divya Sundaram BC’17 and Ashley Youn-Jae Lee GS’17
- Co-Vice Presidents: Renata Castilho CC’17 and Youzhihang Deng CC’17
I’ve worked closely with Ashley and Divya for the last 2 years, and Renata and Youzhihang over the last year, and have full confidence in their leadership and commitment to the Columbia Pre-Law Society. I am sure that they will take this club to even higher heights. Do check out the amazing campaign website that Divya and Ashley made for our internal elections: http://ashleydivya16.tumblr.com/
This isn’t goodbye just yet—the new board will officially take office on April 5th, 2016, so you may still receive event reminder emails from me until then.
But I will miss you—one of the best parts of this job has been meeting you, our General Body members, whether by email, phone or in-person at our events. So please feel free to continue to email me with questions and/or connect with me on LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/in/genevieveantono). I’m also returning to the board next year as a Senior Mentor, so you’ll probably still catch me at events. 🙂
What a joy it has been. Last two weeks!
