Interview with Dr. Shireen Fernandez, Founder of ‘Society’s Choice’.
These are all questions from our current members and others who were not familiar with Society’s Choice.
1) Please can you tell us what ‘Society’s Choice’ is and what is your involvement?
Society’s Choice was started at the end of last year as a way for our friends to network but also give back to the community in many different ways. I am the CEO and one of the founders of Society’s Choice.
2) Can you explain how your group is able to give back?
We have organized many charity events this year for different organizations including 2 major ones for the National Wildlife Federation to help in their oil spill restoration work. We put in a lot of time and energy to help stage these and feel so passionately about giving back.
3) What is next for Society’s Choice with regard to events ?
We just launched in Nashville on October 16th, with a benefit concert and all proceeds are going to the National Wildlife Federation. We had 2 major artists perform there and we were able to raise awareness for the NWF. Then in December we are staging a major Charity event for the police and War Veterans which will be announced soon .
4) Why Nashville?
We have a good friend, singer and actor Beau Davidson who performed at Nature’s Night 2, who is from there and this was a good way for us to start our Nashville Launch.
5) Are you planning to launch in any other cities?
Yes we already launched in Miami, and next we are planning to launch in LA, Chicago, Boston and other major cities across the country.
6) Why will you be launching in other Cities?
Now that we have launched our online magazine we plan on having Society’s Choice representatives in many cities who will be able to cover current events and stories in those cities for the magazine.
7) What is SocietysChoiceboutique.com?
This is our boutique which sells everything from Bikinis to jewelry. A part of the proceeds go to charity and we are looking to work with many more different wholesalers and retailers to add to the site.
8) You post so many amazing photos and features on your page. How do you have the time to do this?
I am lucky to have a great partner, Alex, who helps me with the page. I also have many friends and volunteers who send us pictures and help with the postings.
9) What type of doctor are you?
I’m a Neurology resident.
10) You go to so many different events and you work 90 hour weeks. Do you ever sleep?
Yes sleep is very important to me and I try to balance it, all by good time management.
If I am not able to cover an event personally then my partner Alex represents us.
11) Where do you see your life going as Society’s Choice becomes more and more prominent?
Our group consists of members who are like minded professionals with a lot of positive energy. That’s what makes this group so special. We love our group and it only exists because we have so many amazing members who have helped us grow. I see us all growing together. We see the future growth as very exciting and with the help of all our members there is no limit to what we can do to help try and make our World a better place. And what better way to make a change while having fun doing it!
