Cecilia ChungHow did Suffolk help you decide your career path?

It was a combination of the professors, the assignments they gave me, and working in group, team-building activities. I also volunteered for several organizations during my time outside the classroom, which I think molded me for my career path as well.

When did you first develop your interest in helping others?

When I met my husband [New England Patriots’ safety Patrick Chung], we both found out that we had a passion to help children and our community. He and I always celebrated volunteerism and felt it would be the perfect fit to start our own foundation together.

What is your most memorable Suffolk moment?

Going to Madrid, Spain and learning how to Flamenco dance. I was surrounded by a group of wonderful ladies and the experience is a lifetime memory.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Helping families and providing opportunities to youth and seeing how much they appreciate everything by the smiles on their faces.

What is the last book you have read?

“The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin.

What are the words that you live by?

“Live the life you love, love the life you live.”
