The meaning of success changes for different individuals.
At AASuccess, success comes in many styles and forms.
We coach our students to achieve professional, personal, and academic success and happiness. Our students learn who they are and where they want to go in life.
Success is about learning to embrace both failures and opportunities during each step along a student’s life journey. There is not necessarily an end destination in a student’s life journey.
Our students' stories
I wanted to let you know that after reflecting on my time at AASuccess, I have become a completely different person.
I realize that without AASuccess, I wouldn't be as driven or as self-aware as I am today. Today, I am a part of many organizations and on the executive board for two of them. I happily and strongly lead conversations toward bettering both organizations because I found that I was passionate for what I was doing. AASuccess honestly pulled out the leader in me.
No words can describe further how appreciative I am for AASuccess and you. Both took the time to better me and make me the person I smile for today. So for everything that you have done and continue to do for students in the present and future, thank you. You are making a difference in people. Your impact reflects in our actions. Your influence shines in our success. Your effort stays in our thoughts.
Since 2006, ASuccess has consistenly provided me with the tools and direction to follow my dream of making a difference through health & fitness coaching without compromising on my core values.
Five years from now, I see the business aspect of giving back to AASuccess. I see my business growing and I see it giving back to AASuccess monetarily. Hopefully, I am able to give back in some way. Whether it be through health seminars, fitness classes, or something like that.
I'm a daughter of blue collar, first generation immigrants, and I grew up in Northern Virginia. There were only two things that my parents wanted: get good grades and be a kind person. Getting good grades was learned from school; being a kind person was learned from church. My parents didn't speak much English so whatever else I did learn, I think I learned by luck.
No one taught me EI, etiquette, how to be involved in a community, how to be a leader, what to do when I feel uncomfortable in a situation, how to balance being Asian and American... just to name a few. Growing up, I fought with my parents a lot and I wasn't really involved in any activities. Nonetheless I grew up a happy kid. Thinking back, if someone was there to push me, or guide me at the very least, I might've turned out to be a better version of myself.
New classes are available on a monthly basis.
Students are encouraged to look through the catalogue of course offerings and discuss their interests upon acceptance to the Life Skills Academy.
