Sydney Stewart, CAMD ’15
My parents met at Northeastern more than forty years ago. And when I applied, I was accepted into the Ujima Scholars program, which is a scholarship given by the John D. O’Bryant African American Institute. I knew once I got into this program that I had to go to Northeastern. The people at the African American Institute were so welcoming throughout my time at Northeastern.
Since graduating, I was hired by one of my co-op employers, Black Entertainment Television, where I worked as a marketing coordinator. I then moved on to a position with Viacom’s Velocity Social group as a production coordinator. I am now a strategic social media producer at Condé Nast, consulting, producing, and editing social content for brands such as Vogue, Teen Vogue, Allure, W, and Glamour magazines. I owe these great career experiences to the foundation that Northeastern set for me.
I continue to support Northeastern because I believe in giving back to something that has contributed to who I am and how I’ve grown as a person.
