"I am passionate about ASCEND because it reminds me about how powerful just one person can be. Now imagine that multiplied by many! Ascend allowed me to realize this power by expanding my horizons on multiple levels, and now I hope that we can do the same for many more growing student leaders! Leadership is the freedom from the need to be led, and everyone is an agent of change"

bRIA HAMILTON

Director of Development

"The Ascend Network just feels like home for me. I've learned more about myself and grown every time I've been involved. The retreat is something I strive to broaden to a multitude of individuals, as the experience gained and community built is invaluable."

 

Mehran mansouri

Director of Logistics

To me, "Ascending"  represents the broadening of your horizons through exploring different perspectives. To Ascend means to challenge dominant ways of thinking, and to step out of your comfort zone, while making lasting relationships with the people you meet.

NASSAR KHAN

Director of Multimedia

"Having been a part of the executive team since the pilot project, I am proud of the lives we've touched and the robust network we've built, and I am looking forward to seeing this wonderful leadership opportunity keep growing and developing into the diverse, well-connected, socially aware leadership family that I know it will become."

SARAH LEVY

Director of Events

"For myself, Ascend means taking time to invest in yourself; to develop as a person, as a friend, as a leader. It means making and maintaining connections with people that are just as passionate and driven as you are, that last a lifetime. The people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know are some of the kindest, smartest, most genuine individuals I’ve ever known. The Ascend Network is about restoring a sense of humanity and purpose in this world as well as in your everyday life. And if that isn’t borderline miraculous, then I’m not sure what else would."

Nancy truong

Director of Recruitment

"Ascend to me means family. I always tell the story about how after my first year in University, I made one friend. Ascend has shown me a world of passionate, empathetic and driven people. Ascend taught me that there is a world outside of our own and that it's our job to try to positively impact the lives of those around us. I am so grateful for Ascend."
