Marketing Director of the ECE Students Board 2018-2019
Sophia’s Board Experience
My greatest opportunity this year
The greatest opportunity for me was to experience multiple inspiring working environments. I have difficulties figuring out what I want to do with my future career and this year has definitely showed me a lot of new opportunities.
The greatest obstacle I’ve tackled
I work pretty closely with not only a board of 8 people, but also a committee of 10 people. I really don’t like disappointing people. I’ve accepted the fact that I can’t always please everyone every time, which was really hard for me in the beginning.
Biggest thing I’m thankful for
I am so thankful to have met so many passionate, inspirational, different yet still crazy impressive people in one year. I have made so many close friendships and I’m sure I’m going to be close to these people the rest of my life.
Best thing about my position
The fact that I get to work with every single team and on every single project we do can be stressful sometimes, but it will NEVER offset the EXCITEMENT that it comes with.
Biggest learning lesson of the year
At ECE Students be prepared to get thrown into the deep.The responsibility you get in this organisation is REAL. Throughout the year I’ve learned to listen to people and appreciate everyone’s opinion. However your intuition is shaped by your past experiences, and your existing knowledge which you gained from them. I’ve learned that sometimes even though almost everyone says one thing I need to trust myself and do the other.
What makes us unique
I believe in the concept of intrinsic motivation, the idea that things are worth doing for your own sake, not because of a system of punishments and reward. The people here are alive to make a difference and an impact.
