  • Alternative Breaks Site Leader Info Session | 12:30-1:30PM | PNE 239 - The success of each Alternative Break (AB) trip depends heavily upon the quality of its student leaders. In fact, strong Site Leaders ensure the success and effectiveness of the student-led program as a whole! It is the responsibility of site leaders to coordinate all on-site activities, facilitate participant training and education, and ultimately guide the group through a week of intense and rewarding service. Site Leaders will work with the Service Program Director and the AB Student Coordinators. No previous AB experience is required to become a Site Leader, although familiarity with community involvement and demonstrated leadership abilities are strongly preferred. If you are interested in learning more about the Site Leader position, and how you can help to build the Alternative Breaks movement as a student leader, we encourage you to attend an information session. Please register for this event through MyCWS.

Where Are They Now: Priscilla Weninger ’10

WeningerPlease give a brief background on yourself and your career.
I was born in Houston, TX to immigrant parents from Mexico and Peru. My mother fought for me to attend the top schools across town. If it hadn’t been for my amazing teachers, I would have never gone to Wellesley or received my Master’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin by the time I was 23. My education privilege opened up amazing opportunities like studying abroad in Brazil and Italy, and working in D.C.

At UT Austin I studied social and economic policy, but focused on increasing educational attainment rates for low income communities of color. I joined Teach for America in 2012 and taught ninth grade English in a high-poverty community in Miami, Florida. It was an amazing experience that challenged me and pushed me to truly understand the systemic barriers that low-income children face in their pursuit for college. Within systems that work against students, teachers and leaders become incredibly critical to their success.

I recently moved back to Texas and committed myself to working within the human capital space in education, searching for truly transformative teachers and leaders for our kids. I work as a Talent Partner for IDEA Public Schools, a major charter school network that has sent 100% of its students to college for the past 8 years. My work revolves around coaching principals through the hiring process and recruiting top talent to our teacher and administrator positions. I also partner up with several campuses to improve organizational health and teacher retention. I love what I do!

How has your career changed since you originally envisioned it at Wellesley? What other careers did you consider as a student?
It actually took until the end of my sophomore fall semester to declare my major in Political Science. I had planned to major in Architecture my first year and took several studio art, art history, and math courses to fulfill those requirements. The summer after my first year at Wellesley I participated in a summer architecture program called “Career Discovery” at Harvard Graduate School of Design. While I really enjoyed that experience, I quickly realized that I didn’t have the level of passion that a career in architecture would require (given that it is a very long and strenuous career). One project I was given that summer was to build a school. I realized that I didn’t really care about the physical building as much as I did about the people who would be inside the building. I majored in Political Science on a whim–I knew that I liked the department and wanted to learn more about how public policies shaped our society.

How has Wellesley contributed to your career?
In high school I was the student who kept quiet and didn’t raise my hand when I had a question out of shame and fear. Wellesley changed that; it made me fearless and always willing to raise my hand, speak up, and go against the grain. I truly believe Wellesley’s culture of high expectations pushed me to become resilient when things have gotten tough in my career. Wellesley made me into a problem solver and critical thinker, and ultimately, a leader. My involvement with Mezcla and Society Zeta Alpha during my time at Wellesley helped me build key leadership and relationship-building skills that have only strengthened my roles as policy analyst, classroom teacher and talent strategist.

What is a typical work day or work week like for you?
There is absolutely no typical day or work week for me and I love that! For example, today I hosted a teacher recruitment banquet for over 45 participants. Most weeks involve phone screening teacher candidates, observing and evaluating sample teach lessons for final interviews, coaching my principals on difficult conversations with current teachers, collaborating with school leaders as far as talent placement and strategy, and organizing recruitment efforts. I move around a lot throughout the day, and since I also support schools in San Antonio, I am often on the road.

What piece of advice would you offer students looking to get into your area of interest and expertise?
Within public service I am a big believer of “doing your time” and working your way up. Start at the grassroots level–whether that is working as a community canvasser, organizer, teacher, tutor, or Peace Corps/Americorps member. There will always be time in the future to take the high-level position. Those positions are often disconnected from the community you are looking to serve. Grassroots experience is such a critical perspective to have in order to be successful in a higher-level role within public service.

What do you wish you had known as a student?
I wish I had advocated for myself more in class. When I got that first failing grade on a test my first year, I just shoved the test away in my backpack and felt inadequate. I decided economics was probably just not my thing. It took some time for me to realize that I could do well at Wellesley, as long as I advocated myself and sought out those resources. I wish I had gone straight to my professor’s office hours that day and asked him for help. That way I wouldn’t have waited 2 more years to take another Econ class. The second time around I had an amazing experience because I was able to truly hold myself and my professors accountable for my learning.

If you could come back and take one class at Wellesley what would it be?
I would have taken a religion class! Always wanted to, and wasn’t able to fit it in my schedule.

Where Are They Now: Amy Chu ’89

Please give a brief background on yourself and your career.
I publish comics and graphic novels for women and girls under the imprint Alpha Girl Comics and I’m a freelance writer for comics publishers like DC and Vertigo.

I’ve done a little bit of everything – At Wellesley I took a semester off to start an Asian American magazine. I came back to finish and then became the executive director of the Asian American Arts Alliance. From there I ended up running the management consulting program for nonprofits at the United Way of New York City. I wanted to get more global experience, so I did a stint in Hong Kong doing luxury brand PR. After two years in Hong Kong, I left to attend Harvard Business School. I decided to try conventional Fortune 500 style management consulting for two years. Then I became an independent consultant for biotech startups which I did while getting married and starting a family. About four years ago, a writer friend floated the idea of a startup to make comics for the YA market and we formed Alpha Girl.

How has your career changed since you originally envisioned it at Wellesley? What other careers did you consider as a student?
I think when I applied to Wellesley I put down pre-med because it’s what the smart, respectable kids did. I also applied and got into the dual degree program with MIT to double hedge my bets. My plan was to do economics at Wellesley and Media Lab at MIT. At school, like a lot of students, I was influenced by what was hot, which at the time was banking, consulting, and advertising. I ended up taking the classes I was interested in and graduated with a BA in East Asian Studies and a SB in Architectural Design at MIT.

I started Alpha Girl Comics as the publisher. I have several years of experience writing business plans and Powerpoint presentations but never thought I would be good at writing fiction. Just for fun, I wrote Saving Abby, a sci-fi action comic about a female taxi driver, and people really liked it. It’s what led me to get a Wonder Woman story, and now a book I’m doing for Vertigo this fall.

How has Wellesley contributed to your career?
It may sound funny, but I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for the skills and confidence I learned while at Wellesley. In high school I was very, very shy and had trouble speaking. Now I speak on and moderate panels all the time. It’s changing, but in mainstream comics, especially the superhero kind, it is still very much male dominated on the professional side even though the fan base has changed. I make sure to attend and speak at as many comic-cons I can, just to show that women are active and have a voice in this business.

What is a typical work day or work week like for you?
It’s pretty varied and hard to predict. For example, this is my current week: Monday I sent in a one page pitch to Valiant Comics – they asked me to come up with story ideas for a military character (who happens to be a woman). Tuesday I was in the New York DC Comics offices meeting with editors to discuss some changes in my mystery series that will come out later this year. This morning I wrote a scene for a book I’m doing with one of the Green Lantern artists and my contribution for this blog. This afternoon I have a call to discuss a comic for DMC of RUN DMC. By tomorrow I need to finish the script for a comic book for the Baltimore Museum of Art. Friday I’m flying to Ball State University where I’m lecturing on comics to a class. And Saturday I’m signing my Wonder Woman story at the Aw Yeah Comics! store in Muncie, Indiana.

What piece of advice would you offer students looking to get into your area of interest and expertise?
On the creative side, work on honing your storytelling skills, whether it’s writing or drawing. And self publish. It’s how you get noticed in this business.

What do you wish you had known as a student?
Grades matter a lot less than you think.

If you could come back and take one class at Wellesley what would it be?
WRIT 135 Living in the Age of the Anti-Hero looks really interesting!
