Step Up

Hi Everyone!

I’m Fue Yang,  your supervisor for this year’s Step-Up program. I am the Program Director for one of the programs at Asian Media Access, and will be working with you all this 9-weeks! I hope that we can work together to learn, create, and produce some AWESOME materials than last years group! Its been a grand time meeting you all, and I hope by the end of the 9-weeks you’ve made some new friends!

Anyhow, like I have said take advantage of your supervisors! A little more about your supervisor, I recently graduated in August 2010 with my Master’s in Counseling at Indiana State University. I went to college at The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN. I one day hope to obtain my PhD. in Counseling Psychology to become a Psychologist.

My hopes for this summer is for all of you to have a pleasant experience, starting your work with Asian Media Access. Any time you have a question feel free to ask me, and I will do my best to find an answer for you. Again, treat this like a job as it is a reflection of you and your work ethics. If you perform well, and would like a letter of recommendation or use me as a reference I am more than happy to do that for you!
