My goal as the New York Regional President of Phi Theta Kappa is to encourage the student body to pursue their dreams and that it is never too late to get started on your future. As difficult as any circumstance may present itself, focus on one-self and know that with self-love and determination you can accomplish any and every thing you put your mind to.

My name is Divya Jeanelle Singh and I attend Suffolk County Community college, Grant Campus, Brentwood. Being a non-traditional student has its adversities and I would like to be an example to those who may be going through the same struggle that I have. I want to motivate others to strive for greatness and push for their dreams, no matter how many trials and tribulations they may face. Failure is success in disguise. I am pursuing my associates in criminal justice and plan to pursue a career as a lawyer. In addition to my role as Vice President of the Southern region, I am an active member of the student government and president of the criminal justice club on Grant Campus.
