Jordan Posada

Summer Intensive 2013

"As a young adult, it is important to have people around you that can open your mind and make you aware of your boundless potential and the limitless opportunities of the world. As an engaged Summer Intensive student, I was provided that awareness and use it to create platforms of success that have led me 800 miles away, from Bergen Community College to Columbia College Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. From President of Society of Leaders (S.O.L) to Record Executive of AEMMP Record Label; the longest running student-run record label in the country. I’ve learned the importance of not only doing what it takes to be a successful student-leader, but by sharing my experiences with those who seek to grow into their own leadership."
