What legacy do you hope to leave as a member of the AOT board?
"To create successful opportunities, experiences, and careers for students in unexpected and non-traditional industries and business functions so that they are aware of the agility of their skill set." Ukachi states.
"My hope is to help AOT expand its reach in schools and communities to deliver training to students in more areas/states and to increase collaborations in sponsorships and partnerships," Mona reveals.
"As an organization, AOT is at a key growth phase. I’d like to leave a lasting legacy by helping increase awareness of the organization and its national profile." Lauren explains.
"I have absolutely no tech skills but I am a corporate lawyer by training and have been running a business for a long time. My skill set is complementary. My goal is to use my relationships in the legal community to help grow AOT's impact," Laurie reveals.
"I hope to help the organization strategize on expanding the program to different regions of the country. I hope to help reach more people, impact more lives and provide more services," says Michelleta.
