Pearson Inspired Me
What do you think about when you see the word ‘Pearson’ written in white text on the dark blue background? Do you think of a textbook or a digital learning application? For me, Pearson means so much more. It’s more than just a company, it’s full of life changing experiences. I have been a Pearson Campus Ambassador for about three years and have had very memorable stories I would like to share with you.
Pearson employs a student Campus Ambassador at over 50 campuses across the country. Up until last summer, I hadn’t met a single one of my colleagues in person. However that did not stop wonderful friendships from blooming. I feel like each one of the other Campus Ambassadors is my friend, and it’s a privilege to work alongside such dedicated students who care about education as much as I do. However, the Pearson community extends way past the Ambassador program.
Putting students first
Down to earth is usually not how you would expect to describe executives of an international corporation. However, representing the student voice on a Global Call hosted by John Fallon (Pearson’s CEO!) I was surprised to see how nice he was. I had the privilege of meeting some of the VP’s of Pearson at a national meeting in San Diego this past summer, and witnessed them reaching out to students to get our unique perspective and insights. They truly care about the students.
