Shirley Lee, VP of Outreach

What I Do in AGS: I plan volunteer events for you guys to go to. I try to make sure there are  a variety of events that interest members. Hopefully these events make it easier for club members to get volunteer experience and volunteer hours without having to schedule it on their own. I also help AGS members increase their leadership experience by providing them an opportunity to do their very own leadership projects.
Member Since: Fall 2012
Major: Anthropology

Hobbies: playing with my dogs and sisters, practicing airbending
Likes: fettuccini alfredo, chocolate, chai tea, little kid books like Deltora Quest and Percy Jackson, warmth, pastel gray-blue, my dogs, Totoro
Dislikes: seeing those scary movie trailers on YouTube when I’m only trying to listen to some peaceful music
Favorite Music: Lord of the Rings music, instrumental music, and more
Most Memorable AGS Experience: We were doing an art project with the kids at Commonwealth Elementary School. This was my second time there and I saw a kid that I remembered. I helped him create his clay pot a couple Saturdays ago. I go up to help him with the snowflake we are making this time and he asks why my sister isn’t here with us today. I told him she was busy and couldn’t make it for this project. It surprised that he was concerned for my sister and he remembered us. I couldn’t believe that this kid remembered me out of all the other people he must have met and seen that week when I only spent four hours helping him out on a simple art project. It made me feel like we really were serving as role models for those children and that we have really influenced their lives as they have influenced ours.

What I Do In AGS: I take care of the emails and manage club membership.
Member Since: Fall 2012
Major: Computer Science
Goals: My goal with AGS is to follow in the footsteps of the wonderful board members before me and have another great semester giving back to the community with my fellow colleagues . I’d like to get to know all the new members and help make every event and every experience a memorable and fun endeavor alongside my newfound peers. My personal short term goal is to attain a BS in Computer Science and ultimately want to start a career in database programming.
Hobbies: I enjoy almost anything that involves the outdoors (hiking, jogging, swimming, playing basketball, soccer, hockey, dirt biking, skateboarding, snowboarding, etc… anything on a board really) also enjoy sleeping, reading, eating, cooking, family dinners, gaming, spending countless hrs on Reddit & YouTube, film and TV, discovering new music, researching, playing the drums, making beats, shooting pool with friends, and Schadenfreude
Likes: I like Louis CK…. I like confidence, people that feel good about themselves. It makes an individual beautiful and I for one like feeding off others energy…. Also, Louis CK…. Nice smiles, I’m a sucker for a nice smile or a pleasant or kind gesture such as a simple “good morning” or the act of opening a door for someone…. did I mention I like Louis CK!
Dislikes: Being rushed has to be my biggest pet peeve
Favorite Music: Where do I start?
Most Memorable AGS experience: I can’t really think of one particular experience with AGS since they’ve all been memorable in their own way. Being on the board is an experience within itself and I’m looking forward to many more.
