Meet our July Alumni of the Month! Angela Ko graduated in 2014 with an MA in English and is currently a communications manager at Citigroup in New York City. She also mentors high school students in the Bronx and volunteers with New York Cares. We asked her how her experience at Syracuse University helped in her success:

"Breaking into a field I had no education or experience in was at first a daunting task, but my MA in English helped me move quickly into a new career. I got my first marketing job at FUSIA because of my strong writing background. The company needed a versatile writer for various needs, including press releases, ad copy, web content, and copyediting. After a year at the agency, I was hired as a consultant at Citigroup where I managed email campaigns. Eventually, I moved into my current role where I manage large-scale projects to revamp the company's library of communications. The job entails looking at communications with a critical eye and directing copy changes to agencies, and my writing-intensive studies and my experience teaching writing composition courses have prepared me for success in my professional life."
