Communications Coordinator

I recently joined ELI 360 as their Communication Coordinator. I am so excited about this new opportunity for further growth and service for various reasons. Of all the reasons I can think of that fuel my excitement in working for ELI 360, the biggest one probably stems from the fact that I had experienced first hand what it felt like to be an international student benefiting from the services of this great organization. I have been at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene for three years now and as I reflect on my time here so far, I cannot help but notice how much the people at ELI360 have contributed to that journey. They have sown so much into my life and have helped me develop as an individual academically and professionally.  The best part is that they still treat me with the same warmth and kindness from the first day I met with them at an ELI 360 Roadshow back in 2006 in Penang, Malaysia.

In many ways, I feel like my journey has now come full circle.  Coming from the position an international student to now a staff member at ELI360, I am passionate about extending the same kind of excellence in service to any student looking to attend one of our many distinguished partner universities. This position as Communications Coordinator offers me the great opportunity to combine my perspective as a college student and my passion for helping others into something that will contribute to the experiences of our future students. I am looking forward to where this journey is taking me and it is my sincere hope that any student looking to study abroad will consider joining the ELI360 family.
