July 4 - July 31, 2016
This month, we recognize Zachary Berger is currently attending Metropolitan State University of Denver and graduating in December. He is heavily involved on campus and in the community through programs involving getting students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities to attend college and President of Alpha Alpha Chapter Delta Alpha Pi Honor Society and National Society of Minorities in Hospitality. He is also involved in the Urban Leadership Program on campus learning how to be a better leader.
Through his extensive involvement with Delta Alpha Pi Honor Society, he has helped promote awareness of people with disabilities across Auraria Campus and throughout Denver Colorado by hosting meetings and events that help people with disabilities and is co-authoring a book about how to transition from a school setting to a work and life setting. Pretty impressive for a student of under 20 years old.
Zachary on Studying Abroad: Studying Abroad with ESAC was beneficial for me in so many ways. As someone diagnosed with autism, the experience was challenging, life changing and definitely worth doing. By studying abroad, you get to meet new people and experience new cultures that you otherwise wouldn't, for example, I traveled to Austria, Czech Republic and Greece within less than a month. Each city and country so unique and so diverse. I would definitely recommend studying abroad to everyone, open up your mind and go for it.
