Next Steps: Transition to The Big Apple

The Philo4Thought Hellenic Professional Mentoring Initiative is pleased to present our June 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 had the pleasure of meeting this month’s young professional, John Papaspanos, at our first NHSA Convention at McGill and Concordia Universities (Montreal) in 2013. Having witnessed only a small portion of his journey from student to professional so far, and having seen his dedication to helping the Hellenic community first hand, it’s clear that this young Hellene values the traditions and ethical standards that will go far in making him a successful professional and a model mentor to our youth.

The Philo4Thought Hellenic Professional Mentoring Initiative is pleased to present our May 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 meet this month’s honoree, Andreas Christou, at an NHSA conference hosted at Drexel University, where he gave a talk about AHEPA and Sons of Pericles to a group of new recruits. As Sons of Pericles Supreme Vice President, he was also invited to speak to the assembly of young professionals at Philo4Thought’s 2015 Spring Conference (Columbia University, NYC) on the topics entitled “Youth, Education and Community” and “A Vision of Cyprus,” both of which were very well received and led to stimulating question and answer sessions. Though Andreas may be young in years, his passion and dedication towards the promotion of Hellenic values and traditions is clear in all that he does, as many would agree. We are honored to share his story with you today.
