Paying it forward is a decision each one of us can make.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Robin Samora Inc., a Boston-based branding, promotions and PR firm that works with experts, entrepreneurs and authors, announced today that it has awarded a scholarship to Maryland graduate student Sahendy Estevez, which will enable her to attend Vocus’ “Demand Success 2013” conference in Washington D.C. on June 20 and 21.
Estevez is a graduate student in the Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, and currently interns at the University of Maryland’s National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism. She beat out a large number of other worthy candidates by submitting a powerful essay that highlighted her desire to make a unique contribution to US security initiatives and diplomacy in the Middle East, and at the same time, serve as mentor to women and help shape the next generation of strong female leaders.
“As a low-income student from a predominantly Spanish community, I have been privileged to graduate from college and graduate school,” commented Estevez. “Moreover, I have utilized my academic and personal experiences to serve as a peer mentor and leader for students in my undergraduate school. For all these reasons, I greatly appreciate the remarkable opportunity offered to me by Robin Samora Inc. to attend the Vocus Demand Success 2013 conference!”
“I have no doubt that someone with Sahendy’s track record of overachieving and breaking barriers will make the most out of this opportunity,” commented Robin Samora. “Paying it forward is a decision each one of us can make. It’s extremely gratifying to help Sahendy inspire and empower other women to achieve their career goals -- especially in industries, fields and roles where women have traditionally been under-represented.”
Vocus’ Demand Success 2013 conference features keynotes by Arianna Huffington, Rohit Bhargava, Jeremiah Owyang and several other thought leaders, who will share insights and advice on achieving success in the information economy, and more.
