"Desire is the key to motivation but it's determination and commitment to an
unrelentless pursuit of your goal- a commitment to excellence that will enable you
to attain the success you seek." -- Mario Andretti|
In September of 2018, Sasha not only had a vision of her goals, but never lacked
the motivation, determination, or commitment to help Miami's NRHH Chapter
achieve its goals.
Sasha is an outstanding advisor who encourages students to be the best version
of themselves. She sees the potential in students, they may not see in
themselves. Sasha fosters one-on-one relationships with balancing a large-scale
vision of how to elevate the NRHH Chapter at Miami University. Leading by
example, Sasha has high expectations for each of her students, which pushes us
to try our absolute hardest for our shared goal. Sasha Masoomi has proven her
dedication to NRHH for years now. This past September was no different. As
Miami University's NRHH Chapter faced hardships due to executive board
members leaving, Sasha stayed strong through all adversity.
As the semester unravelled it's hiccups, Sasha stayed as a beacon of positivity
and assurance for those who needed her. Multiple nights after frustrating
executive board meetings, Sasha would walk me home to have another 1:1 outside
of business hours to help me manage our chapter. Sasha has provided countless
service opportunities for our members.
I don't think NRHH ever leaves Sasha's mind. Sasha is always looking out for the
best interest of others and ways to give back to the community. Sasha is always
the first to volunteer for opportunities not in her job description and to go the
extra mile. Not only does Sasha demonstrate commitment to leadership and
service, but she inspires and empowers those around her to follow her dedication.
Along with her professional duties, Sasha serves as the liaison between the Office
of Residence Life and Miami’s Cliff Alexander Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
In September she volunteered for the Suicide Prevention Walk, at the local dog
shelter with NRHH members, at the Residence Hall Association Retreat and more.
Impact isn’t built from one large action peice, but consistent, meaningful
involvement. Sasha displays this by taking advantage of every small opportunity
to be involved in the student community to increase leadership reflection among
students and myself. Throughout September, whenever I was feeling overwhelmed
or misguided, she always knew what to say by balancing me out to help shape the
plan of how to best serve our members.
Sasha can always be counted on for an idea, she has positive quotes, leadership
philosophies, service events and recognition ideas up her sleeve to use at
anytime. Sasha worked with every executive board member in September to help
NRHH achieve it's potential. At NRHH general body meetings, Sasha always has a
smile on her face and it sharing a positive attitude, that always spreads to our
Currently, I am also applying to graduate school. As September arrived and has
now left, Sasha served as a constant mentor, full of advice and wisdom of Student
Affairs Graduate Programs. She helped me finalize my personal statement, decide
on which schools I am applying to, give me information on each of them and write
me a recommendation letter.
Sasha style of leadership and advising have shaped the foundation of Miami's
NRHH Chapter. She is determined to achieve her goal of excellence, but is
flexibile of how we will obtain that. As September proved a tiresome month, she
helped the executive board still achieve their goals of productivity and community
feeling, but only by being flexible in ideas.
