Members, we would like to congratulate our most recent graduate Mercy Tsai (Yu-Chen), CCP

It’s an honor to be here tonight with the President of the Conestoga Chapter Linda; the organizing committee, the alumni’s, the graduates, the students, the friends, the guests and the staffs here. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my thoughts and reflections of completing the CCP program.

It has been an interesting journey and it all started about 2.5 years ago when my supervisor Laura, had informed our team of a professional program called the CCP and asked if anyone was interested in doing it. I met my colleague Kim at the time, who is also a graduate here tonight and is now the current student advisor in this Chapter; Kim and I took interest in taking the course, so we enrolled together. She was a great study buddy to have, we were able to discuss, encourage and help each other along the way. Initially, we had no clue what this CCP was, we looked further into it and asked ourselves: “Is it worth our time, energy, and money? What was in it for me?” It was its reputation and recognition that CCP had already established, it was the professional development, the career opportunities and the edge it gives an individual once one completes the program.

Tonight, as proud students and graduates, we are recognized for the hard work, dedication, and perseverance in achieving our CCP Designation. I am sure everyone experienced some sort of struggles, obstacles and sacrifices made throughout their journey in completing the CCP program, however, let us not forget to thank our loved ones; be it our spouse, family and friends, colleagues, professors, or Sandra (the education coordinator) that had helped and supported us along the way. When I was younger, my elders had taught me to always remember and to thank our roots; we would not be here today if it wasn’t for their advice and support. We owe our success to them as well.

Tonight, as proud students and graduates, let us continue to keep ourselves informed and be open-minded to learning new things. As the environment and the world constantly change, so will our skills and knowledge need be also. Life is full of learning. A great uncle of mine once told me that if you don’t know something, just ask; If you know what’s right, then act on it; if you make a mistake, just correct it. I have kept these words to heart and to practice every day.

Tonight, as proud students and graduates, we invest in ourselves to be the great leaders of today. We represent and are role models of CCP professionals in the society and workplace we’re in. Let us apply and bring out the potential that the CCP program has trained us to be and to do.

Congratulations again to all the graduates tonight and to all the students in the process of achieving your CCP designations. I look forward to continuously learn and grow with you all. Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Mercy Tsai (Yu-Chen)
