Student Leaders


Simone Rodriguez
My name is Simone Rodriguez and I am the Graduate Assistant for the Leaders in Service Program. I am very excited to be working with this program and to help bridge the gap between UAlbany students and the Albany community. I am currently enrolled at the university working towards a Masters in Social Work. I share a passion for helping people. One of my ultimate career goals is to run a non-profit organization that helps youth in an inner city community. I have a lot of volunteer experience at different non-profit organizations here in Albany and in my hometown in the Bronx, NY. I received my bachelor's degree in Law and Society- Psychology Pathway at Sage College of Albany in May 2015. The Leaders in Service program has given me the opportunity to get back to my core work which is serving those in need. I appreciate your interest in Leaders in Service; and I look forward to working with you!

I have major goals that I want to achieve; however, I know that I won't be able to achieve them without the selfless act of helping others. I am currently the Community Service Assistant (CSA) for Indian Quad. I hope you all choose to serve by joining Leaders in Service. I can't wait to meet you!

I major in Biology with a double minor in Africana Studies and Chemistry. I am from The Bronx, NY. In the future, I aspire to become a Radiologist.
