My name is Sadia Alao. I’m a 3rd year Marketing & Theater major and I am one of the new Directors of PR for SUSA! I have a special interest in diversity and inclusion, media, and entrepreneurship. I’m an actor and writer, & hope to one day head my own media production company highlighting the successes and victories of people of color.
My name is Madeleine Cheng, the other Director of PR! I’m a sophomore Finance and Information Systems double major with a history minor. I’m really interested in entrepreneurship, climate change, and the music business industry, to name a few topics. I’m a little all over the place in terms of future career plans, but I hope to get involved in some initiative to fight or mitigate the impacts of climate change, whether that’s through my job or outside of it, and I’d also like to involve music in some way or another like through side gigs or opening up my own music venue.
Our goal for this semester is to make SUSA’s blog platform more reachable and relatable to the students of Smith! We plan on writing blog articles with an emphasis on the student experience; not just professionally, but personally as well.
Some article topics we plan on writing about are issues dealing with mental health, tips for a successful semester, the importance of sleep, what kinds of career opportunities are available to those with a business degree, and the process of getting an MBA.
Reach out to us via instagram @SUSAumd with topics or interests you want to see us blog about, or @SadiaAlao (fb) & @madcheng28 (ig) if you just want to chat!
We’re really excited for this upcoming year and we wish you all the best of luck for the semester!!
