Derlin Hsu transitioned into the role of Interim Executive Director in April 2018. We selected Derlin to serve as interim E.D. as she is the prime example of an NTLP success story, and has shown competency in the major capacities required for the position. Derlin was a three time participant at NTLP during high school, and voted Ambassador twice at camp by her peers. She was so inspired by what she had learned at camp, she worked as an NTLP intern for Laura Segura after high school, went on to volunteer with NTLP every summer for nearly 15 years as an alumni staff member, served on the Advisory Board, and most recently led NTLP’s Alumni Committee and mentored in our Corps Fellows program. Outside of NTLP, she earned her BA in Psychology and Music from UC San Diego, then earned a Masters in Music Therapy from Colorado State University. As a Music Therapist working with many different types of people, Derlin still practices the important lessons learned from NTLP of believing in and cultivating the potential within every person, accepting and celebrating people’s differences, and leading from the heart.
Ashleigh’s father Daniel attending the first ever NTLP camp in 1992 and encouraged Ashleigh to participate prior to her sophomore year in 2008. She reluctantly attended but that first camp turned Ashleigh’s life around. After attending camp for three consecutive summers, her experiences had such a positive impact on her life that she came back to volunteer as a group leader beginning in 2014. She later joined the NTLP Alumni Committee and was appointed to the Advisory Board. It was during a board meeting in San Francisco that Ashleigh realized the passion that she had for NTLP and decided to do more. She immediately applied to be part of the NTLP Operations as soon as the position opened.
“I may be young, but I have been through many experiences that have created a very strong woman within myself. My place at NTLP feels right and I am dedicated to giving this organization my all — I am very happy and honored to be part of this family.”
Ashleigh also attends Folsom Lake College and intends to transfer to CSU Sacramento to finish her Bachelor of Arts in Human Communication. She is proud to have NTLP as a part of her life and hopes to pass her positive experiences on to future teen leaders.
