SORT BY Relevancy
When Francis Kong was five years old, his father sat him down and told him he had two choices in life - he could be a physician or he could be a failure.
At the end of his second year at the Royal College of Surgeons, one of his professors told him that he should go and have fun on his spring break because once he was back, it would be heads down with no time off for many years. So, together with a couple of medical school buddies, he boarded a 747 to Barcelona, Spain for what he hoped would be two weeks of fun in the sun. As they attempted to land at the Barcelona airport, the plane experienced what Francis thought was turbulence – followed by a failed attempt to land. Shortly after that the intercom came on and the pilot made an announcement – but it was in Spanish. The only thing word he could understand was one that was being repeated over and over: “Emergencia, emergencia.” In those last few seconds, Francis saw in his mind’s eye, his mom, his dad, his sisters and the faces of all of his mentors.
“I told them I loved them very, very much. I thanked them for all of the gifts they had given me in my life. And I said, ‘goodbye’ – I am so sorry I had to go now.”
Francis survived his near-death experience but life for him would never be the same. He formed Edge Interns in College and learned how to mentor young people on a large scale. Then in 2012, he founded Edge Interns to help young people figure out what their dreams are and help them to make them come true as early as possible. There were 5 interns in Edge’s first year, now there are more than 330 from very prestigious institutions around the country.

Viki Winterton interviews Sue Ellen Allen!
Sue Ellen is a former University of Texas grad, former educator, former business owner, former community leader, and former inmate at Arizona State prison.
She is a current author and activist promoting education behind bars. She serves as Executive Director for Gina’s Team, an organization that brings educational programs and speakers into prison to inspire and empower the inmate population to strive for a better future and a successful reentry. Gina’s Team is named for her prison roommate who died there of medical neglect. Gina’s death was a defining moment of Sue Ellen’s journey, giving her life a new purpose and passion.
In prison, under harsh conditions, she survived advanced breast cancer and learned to turn pain into power. She also learned that not all prisons are behind bars, and that every journey has a purpose. Overcoming incredible odds, she found her purpose and now works with prison officials, legislatures, and interns from Arizona State University to serve the forgotten population behind bars, so that upon their reentry to society they will join our community as positive, contributing members.
The award-winning author of The Slumber Party From Hell, a memoir about her prison journey, her writing has also been included in Serving Productive Time by Tom and Laura Lagana, authors of Chicken Soup For the Prisoner’s Soul. Additionally, many of her poems were published in Cosmopolitan magazine under the leadership of Helen Gurley Brown.
Attorney Sarah Steele and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.
The audience should know that although Ms. Steele is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.
This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
Tonight we discuss the topic of interns. CBS and Worldwide Pants, the production company behind the “Late Show With David Letterman,” are embroiled in a class-action lawsuit that was filed first by a woman that claims that she worked as an intern on the show, and was wrongfully denied wages and overtime pay. Should all internships be paid or should some remain unpaid positions? Tune in to hear the hosts discuss the intern debate.
