An Interview with Outgoing AGS President:
- What is your favorite memory of AGS and why?
I have too many, but I have to say my favorite memory of AGS has to be our socials because these are the best time when we can chill, meet awesome people, play sports, and have a blast eating delicious food. However, nothing can beat my one-on-ones with my AGS peeps. Whether it is just chilling in the Social Science Lab, grubbing on cafeteria food, studying in the library, and just bothering each other all day long, these 1 on 1s have always been the spur of my favorite moments at PCC. These are the best memories that I will take with me to Cal.
- What made you decide to join AGS?
I was invited to join AGS in Spring 2009. Little did I know, this club changed my life. I met all 2 of closest friends at my first AGS meeting, and this was what started my passion for AGS. Being able to spend quality time with amazing peers while helping the community and AGS one event after another.
- What is the best AGS event you attended and why?
The best event I attended has to be pulling an all-nighter with the Formation Area Committee at the night before the 2011 Rose Parade. This event was the coldest and longest event ever, but it was totally worth it. Definitely one of the best ways to celebrate New Year’s is blocking off streets with your craziest friends while having food services come by us with great refreshments. I remembered this night just gets better while seeing crowds of people passing by us getting pump up for house parties and for the big football game. It was very exciting to feel the nice festive holiday spirit out on the streets with my team, Mona and Eric, was the Tournament Member I had the pleasure of knowing him that night. He really taught Mona and I everything about Pasadena. Adding to the great night was eating the best breakfast at 5am in the morning with the rest of the FAC teams , and trying to recuperate as much energy as possible before we get pumped up for our second and last shift of the day.
- What advice do you have for future AGS board members?
“There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who ask what’s happening. “
My advice – MAKE IT HAPPEN!
- What would you like to see happen differently in AGS if anything?
More leaders, more helping hands, and great changes to our community
- What was the best part of your position?
The best is part of being about being President of AGS is knowing that there are others fighting and working the same goals with you. It’s all about the teamwork!!!
- Is there anything else you would like to communicate to the AGS community?
Words cannot express how much AGS has meant to me. There have been so many priceless experiences I have enjoyed in these past 5 semesters with AGS. I truly learn so much from each board officers and met the most unique and special friends here. I will never forget the special moments we had here at PCC. Thank you all for this record-setting year, and best of luck to all of you as you rise again at your new institutions.
On behalf of the entire board, we wish Share the best of luck in her future endeavors and thank her for her tireless service to AGS.
