Aspasia Apostolakis Miller

Director of Change Management, Office of Change Management

Evanston

12 years of service at NU

 

My interest in being a mentor

The main motivation I have is that I enjoy the reciprocity of sharing knowledge and experiences with another person.  This requires listening, objectivity, and open mind, and the belief that we have all we need inside of us. Sometimes a second person can help us tap into our talents, overcome obstacles, see things in a new light, provide encouragement, and inspire us to action.

 

My personal interests and hobbies

Books and movies about social issues that we face in our country, singing, creating life story narratives and videos, and the encore career movement that inspires people in the second of life to do pro-social work.
