The Philo4Thought Hellenic Professional Mentoring Initiative is pleased to present our April 2015 “Young Professional of the Month” Feature Article! The goal of our publications is to provide positive, successful role models who will inspire the next generation of young professionals. A preliminary criterion for #YPM candidates is their active engagement in an entrepreneurial initiative or career path. Candidates are typically of Hellenic origin and part of a philanthropic, humanitarian or environmentally conscious field. The most essential qualification they have in common, however, is the spirit and compassion to persevere, and the heart to share their knowledge and experience with others.
We have had the pleasure to know this month’s young professional, Constantine Gurlakis, through the initiatives he organized for the Intercollegiate Hellenic Society (IHS). Born and raised here in Astoria NY, he is moving to build and improve community resources through his ongoing projects. We are pleased to share his journey with our readers.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: Many thanks to Constantine Gurlakis for sharing his story, and to Margaret Skourlis, Vice President of IHS, for her nomination.
