Event Description:
“All of us have a story to tell. Join us on April 19, 2017 for our first-ever storytelling night at Baruch exploring the theme of Failure.

Remarkable professionals will share their deepest stories about failures in their lives which shaped their careers. Storytellers will present a 5 minute story, creating a powerful image in the audience’s mind of a time gone wrong. And maybe the story has a happy ending – or not!

Audience members will also have an opportunity to present a story! We will ask interested audience members to put their names into a random drawing to also present a 5 minute story of their own on the theme of Failure.”

About Khadiza

Khadiza Begum was born in Sylhet, Bangladesh. She earned her A.S. degree in Business Administration from LaGuardia Community College. She is currently studying at Baruch College majoring in Operation Management and minoring in Communication. She became highly involved in the various student clubs and organizations on campus at LaGurdia College such as she was President of Economic club, Member of BSA (Bangladesh Student Association). As a student, she served on the College Senate. She was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society (PTK), Member of ASAP programme and member of Honors Student Advisory Committee (HSAC). Bangla is her first language and English is her second Language. She chose to become a Student Success Mentor (SSM) because she has a passion for helping people. She was very lucky because in her first year she had her brother, Usman Gani here to show her around campus, teach her how to use the library, show her the academic calendar etc. When she saw the SSM program and what it was for she knew immediately that she wanted to be a mentor so she could help people out in the same way that her brother helped her. She believes that if you do not have someone to guide you through your first year or two of college, it can be a very daunting experience that could discourage you from continuing your education, so she wants to be that person to show people everything that LaGuardia has to offer.
