This month, we recognize Joycelyn Alleyne. She was a participant in 2015, adding an element of fun, commitment and professionalism that was unsurpassed. We commend her for being so deeply involved with her university and are enjoying watching her move into what will no doubt be a beautiful life story.
Joycelyn describes life during and shortly after USF:
"My experience at the University of South Florida was everything I wished for and more. If you ask any international student, they will tell you that going away from home to study is a life changing experience and most of all, an opportunity. This is how I approached my college experience and as a result was lucky enough to truly submerge myself into various platforms at the university. From my freshman year I became involved with Housing and Residential Education and with an organization called the International Business Board. My sophomore year was the beginning of the legacy that I left at USF, as I became a Resident Assistant for freshman students, held a position in the International Business Board and became involved with HerCampus USF where I wrote a few articles and planned campus wide events. I studied abroad with ESAC to Prague, Czech Republic during my summer going into my junior year and was able to broaden my perspective and understanding of the world. My junior year was a year of life changing opportunities as I joined the Beta Gamma chapter of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Incorporated and served as a mentor for the Intercultural Student Leadership Conference. I also became a USF Ambassador and interned with Tech Data Corporation. As I approached my senior year, I made sure I focused on my studies and held higher positions in my organizations while I worked for the Career Services Department. I was also humbled by the opportunity to be crowned the USF 2015 Homecoming Queen, which truly demonstrated my love for the university, and everything it has given me. ...read more
