We are very happy to announce July’s Member of the Month Nobiru Suzuki, DMD Class of 2018! She made the move to Boston last year from Rochester, NY, but she is originally from Japan! As a first year, Nobiru wanted to get involved with ASDA after seeing how excited the existing board members were about being part of the organization. Now we are excited to have Nobiru on the board as the chair of the Lunch and Learn Committee!
Nobiru was a very active member of the Lunch and Learn committee last year as the Lunch and Learn Vice Chair. What she enjoys most about the committee is connecting with the representatives that come in for the Lunch and Learns. She remarks, “All the presenters have great resources available for us during and after graduating from dental school. I organize the talks in hopes that students will become aware of the knowledge and/or resources available to them through various dental-related organization and companies”. We are so grateful for all the work you put in last year that made this possible!
Her most memorable ASDA moment was at ASDAs Annual Session Gold Crown Ceremony. At the ceremony, she learned about the extensive work and inventive ideas that other schools implemented to improve their chapters. This experience gave her ideas about how to improve and run her committee. We look forward to seeing where Nobiru can take the Lunch and Learn Committee this year!!
When Nobiru is not organizing Lunch and Learns or going to class, she enjoys strolling around the city (especially the parks), going to concerts, and doing yoga. She also has many goals on her bucket list including taking a trip to Europe, witnessing a lunar eclipse, and learning how to make a surprise-inside cake!
Nobiru leaves us with some words of encouragement for all incoming ASDA members, “Being a Board Member as a first year made my year much more stimulating and full of new experiences. I would encourage others to get involved early, even if it's nerve-wracking at first, because you never know what it's like until you experience it!”
Thank you so much for everything you have already done for BU ASDA Nobiru! You bring so much to the chapter and we are so happy we have you with us for the next few years!
