Leadership comes easy to Susan Choy ’11. Self-promotion, not so much. In fact, when the soft-spoken Malden native was named recipient of the 2011 Dr. Donald Brown Award for extraordinary contributions to the greater AHANA community at Boston College, she made a quiet phone call home to tell her family, but hardly told any friends at school.
“I didn’t want to come across as boastful,” explained Choy. “So many people are doing so many great things here.” She is undoubtedly one of them. Asked about winning the Brown Award, Choy characteristically replied: “I felt humbled and fortunate to be recognized.”
Choy is an operations management and marketing major who is pursuing an American Studies minor with an Asian American Studies concentration. She made a mark practically right after arriving at BC: As a freshman, she became involved in the AHANA Leadership Academy, the Emerging Leaders Program and the Campus School Volunteers Boston Marathon Team.
She has since added to her list of activities, serving as chief-of-staff for the AHANA Leadership Council, AHANA Caucus co-director, and AHANA Caucus representative and vice president for the Southeast Asian Student Association. She also was a co-chair of the AHANA 30th Anniversary Celebration Committee.
