Thank you, Pauline

It's the last day in the office for FIUTS Student Programs Coordinator Pauline Tolentino! Pauline joined FIUTS in summer 2016. Since then, she has coordinated hundreds of student events and activities; trained and mentored dozens of FIUTS Facilitators; kept the FIUTS front desk running smoothly; and advised student leaders in planning events such as Global Gala. We are sad to see her go but excited to see how she continues to help students grow in her new role at UW Bothell. We're sending her off with lots of messages from students and staff to wish her well. Thank you, Pauline!

Dear Pauline! Your friendliness, approachability, kind demeanor, your willingness and ability to hear people are a testament to your big heart and inspiring for everyone. You made me feel part of the community. Thank you! Have a great time at whatever you're about to do next! 🃏 - Nail Hassairi, FIUTS Facilitator

Dear Pauline, you have been such a positive presence in FIUTS in the time that I've gotten to know you. I think that your presence will linger there long after you've gone, as you have not only helped other students develop relationships and grow into themselves, but have also helped me specifically learn from my mistakes and strive to be better. Thank you for all your hard work in building FIUTS' community - it did not go unnoticed or unappreciated, and will certainly stay with us until all other memories fade. Best of luck at UW Bothell, and best of wishes to your beautiful family. - Henry Milander, FIUTS Facilitator alum
