Members of the Month Interviews :: Shannon Wu and Fiodor Otero

Shannon Wu

1. How did you come to learn about AGS?

” I heard about AGS through a friend, and I found out more about it during club week on campus.”

2. What made you want to become a member of AGS?

 In high school, I was required to do community service as well, so I wanted to continue doing that, plus meet new friends.”

3. What has been your most memorable experience of AGS thus far?

My most memorable experience would probably be Spring Convention last year. I learned a lot more about AGS and became friends with a lot of members!”

4. In what ways has AGS benefited you?

AGS has helped me with my interpersonal skills!”

5. If you could change or improve one thing about AGS, what would it be and how would you change it?

 I probably can’t change much, but I would like for our club to be more closely knit together. I think a club would function more successfully if everybody knew everybody, because sometimes when I go to the meetings, I don’t know more than half of the people there, and it feels like walking into a classroom on the first day of a semester.”

6. Describe AGS in one word. Briefly explain.

“ I cant think of anything…so I guess “Pride” or prideful because I think everybody in an honor society would feel a bit of pride. You know, even if people don’t express it, being in an honor society should make people proud of themselves.”
