Chilling Tong
Her passion for English has led to
a productive life of helping others

November 06, 2009

“Studio Classroom is on the air!” Growing up, Chilling Tong was greeted by these words very morning, and in fact, if she didn’t hear them, she knew she had overslept!

“空中英语教室现在开始广播”!在她的成长期间,董志玲每天的早晨就听到这句问候语。事实上,如果她没听到这句早晨问候语,她就知道自己已经睡过了头!

From an early age, her mother impressed upon her the importance of learning English, and as Tong listened to Studio Classroom, she became curious about America. Thereafter, she had a desire to go to America to pursue her dreams.

从很早开始,她的母亲就给她留下学习英语重要的印象,当她每天听到“空中英语”广播,就对美国产生一种好奇。此后,她就希望能到美国,追寻她的美国梦。

机会多多
Opportunities abound
Tong’s dreams came true in 1984 when she became a student at California State University, Long Beach. After graduating in 1988, she began working for the State of California and over the next 12 years served in various ways. Tong’s many roles included assistant secretary for international trade in the California Trade and Commerce Agency. In this capacity, she promoted the state’s economic development as well as its trade and employment services.

An even grater opportunity came in 2001 when President George Bush named her commissioner of the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Tong next accepted a position in the U.S. Department of Commerce, where she worked until January 2009.

2001年她迎来了一个重大的机会,美国总统乔治,布殊任命她为总统顾问委员会的顾问。专注亚洲美国和太平洋岛国(美属)居民(简称;美国亚太事务)。接下来的职务是美国商务部,任期至2009年的1月份。

国际领导基金
International Ladership Foundation
When asked recently about her latest project Tong said I want to help young people gain competence and prepare them to face life’s challenges. You become a public servant because you have a passion and a dream and you want to help people.”

当被问及最近有关的计划时,董说;“我希望能帮助年轻人有一技之长和他们要有准备面对人生的挑战。因为你是一个公务员,有一种热情和理想,你想要帮助别人”。

With those goals in mind, Tong and her husband Joel Szabat, co-founded International Leadership Foundation (ILF), Each year, ILF awards scholarships to approximately 35 Asian—Pacific American college students and sponsors nearly 120 more students for leadership training. The scholarship recipients get hands on experience while performing public service internships in various governmental agencies.

由于在她心目中有这些目标,董和她的丈夫,约尔 斯扎巴特共同创建“国际领导基金”简称(ILF)每年,ILF授予大约35名亚太地区的美国学校的学生奖学金。以及资助近120名学生培训成为领导人才。这些奖学金的受惠者,可以从事于政府各部门,执行政府公共服务机构的实习工作。

专为亚裔学生的新计划
New program for Asian students
Whereas the scholarship program is designed for Asian Americans, “Young Ambassadors,” ILF’s 12—day summer program held in Washington, D.C., is strictly for college students from Asia. It includes lectures on public policy, business negotiation skills, environmental protection, global economic trends and more. Students tour area monuments and government offices, and they visit with congressmen and women. Through its various training programs, ILF strives to raise up future business and government leaders.

鉴于,奖学金的计划是专为亚裔美国学生所设立的“年青的大使们”。在美国的华盛顿D.C,“国际领导基金”组织,举办了为期12天的夏季培训班。所有的学生都是从亚裔中严格挑选出来。培训课程包括;公共政策演讲,商务谈判与技巧,环境保护,全球经济趋势等等。学生们还经常游览国家纪念碑(公园)和政府机构等。同时他们还参观访问国会议员和妇女界层。通过这些各种不同的培训项目,“国际领导基金”努力提升学员将来的业务水平和政府部门的领导才能。

Tong’s childhood passion for English became a vehicle for personal achievement. Today, she uses her passion, enthusiasm and experience to help prepare others for a world of exciting opportunities!

董的童年对英语的执着与热情,已成为她传递人们走向成功之道。今天,她运用她的热情,热心和体会去帮助那些对世界抱有远大理想的人们,机会正等着你噢。
