Standout Senior Selected To Attend Leadership Conference
Farmingdale, NY (December 3, 2020 )--Farmingdale High School business honor society student, Aniqa Khan, was selected by her advisors Stacy Cabrera and Donna Wright to attend a virtual Winning Women Leadership Conference hosted by Virtual Enterprises. The Winning Women Leadership Conference is an early career development program for high-potential female leaders. Students attending had the opportunity to engage with and learn from inspiring women business professionals about the skills needed to develop successful careers.
“Aniqa was chosen by Mrs. Wright and myself to represent Farmingdale High School at the Winning Women's Conference,” said business teacher Stacy Cabrera. “Aniqa has demonstrated initiative and drive by seeking out leadership opportunities inside and outside of the classroom that she knows will open doors for her future.”
The virtual conference included a panel of dynamic female business leaders, who shared their experience, guidance, and helpful tips on building a personal brand, establishing a professional presence, and developing effective communication skills. In addition, leaders guided students through themed activities on leadership, teamwork, and presentation skills.
“It was a great experience; I was able to speak with some women in fascinating positions who had valuable advice for myself and the changing times we are a part of,” said Farmingdale High School senior, Aniqa Khan. “I also learned a lot through the group activities I took part in, where we brainstormed ideas on personal branding, professionalism, and communication. I hope to be able to do more of these events in the future.”
