Leadership Positions in The Fellows Society
I am really grateful to have been elected to run as Historian. I have held many positions in the past such as President of a French Association or treasurer of a Theater Association, but I have never been historian. I believe it would be a good opportunity and a great way to meet more Fellows. I realized that being active on campus make me more productive in my research. Lastly, I hope that my past experiences will contribute to the progression of the Society.
