Becoming an NSCS member and getting involved with the City Tech Chapter is a decision I would not change if I could. My involvement afforded me a number of opportunities that were instrumental in improving my interpersonal and leadership skills. I was able to travel to two summer NSCS Leadership Summits held in Washington D.C. that were geared towards developing the leadership skills of the Chapter Officers, and equip us with the tools necessary to keep our chapter active. I was also able to assist with the organization of a number of Community Service projects, both on and off campus.

Another great aspect of my involvement was the development of lasting relationships with extraordinary individuals. On June 2, 2005, I graduated from City Tech with a Bachelor of Technology in Computer Systems. I was rewarded for my academic accomplishments with the honors of Suma Cum Laude, induction into Tau Phi Sigma, one of the recipients of the Alumni Association Performance Excellence Award in memory of Scott Riesenburg, and a Certificate of Excellence from the Computer Systems Department.

I know that there are presently hundreds of NSCS members at City Tech, and I would like to encourage you all to get involved, as it is a rewarding experience. Remember that it is not a positive feature on your resume unless you can enunciate on the contributions you have made to the prosperity of the organization.

Originally from Bangladesh, which is a densely populated country with unfortunately poor educational opportunities, my parents decided to move the United States a few years ago, filled with hope.

While in Bangladesh, coming to the United States was a dream of mine. However, when I came to America, I had a difficult time learning English. I attended an adult high school, because I over 18 years-old at the time. While there, I took a lot of ESL courses to improve my English. After completing these classes, I enrolled in literature courses, which I still find a bit difficult. Luckily, I receive a lot of support from my parents and friends. I believe that what I may lack in English knowledge, I more than make up for with my mathematics skills. This is why I chose to pursue a degree in Applied Mathematics at City Tech.

I am not sure what life has in store for me next, but I am grateful for all the opportunities I have had to thus far and I will continue to strive to achieve great things in the future.

Becoming a member of NSCS has been an honor. It is a very good feeling to know that all of my hard work has been recognized. This honor will serve as my inspiration and motivation to continue to excel in the rest of my college career, and beyond.

I am a Human Services major and I have an overwhelming desire to help people.
I look forward to fulfilling the principles of the City Tech chapter of NSCS, Leadership and Service. More than anything, being accepted into this honor society reaffirms for me that I have what it takes to be successful in life.

A native of Trinidad and Tobago, I have a passion for telecommunications and technology. I had to confront many obstacles to attend City Tech. My family made many sacrifices to get me where I am today. Their confidence in me drives me to excel and to make the best of this opportunity.

I was interested in becoming a member of this City Tech chapter of NSCS because of the personal growth qualities I would be exposed to and wanted to develop as a leader, as well as a team player. The community service requirement and interaction with other self-motivated people made is possible for me to truly able to give back to my community.

One of my future goals is to become a telecommunications teacher. I get satisfaction from working with children, along with empowering them to reach their greatest potential. I had very good teachers growing up, who have inspired me to want to "pay it forward."

Having already earned an Associate in Applied Science degree, I am currently pursing a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. I plan to continue my education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing.

Being a member of NSCS has played an integral role in my college experience because I have an opportunity to be a leader, serve my community, and be recognized as a student who has excelled academically. I consider this a great opportunity as it is consistent with my reasons for becoming a nurse as well. As a member of City Tech chapter of NSCS, I also have a chance to broaden my horizons, get involved in various events, and motivate others to do the same. I look forward to working with my fellow members to do a great job, so as to allow our chapter to grow. I encourage the entire City Tech community to feel free to approach me with any suggestions, comments, or questions.
