Publicity Pieces

Cynthia is truly passionate about publicity, whether it’s for entertainment, technology or non-profits. Her junior year at USC she worked as the Public Relations Co-Director of the Latina/o Student Assembly (LSA), a non-profit umbrella organization for Chicana/o, Hispanic, Latina/o student organizations at USC and has been in existence for approximately 25 years. The purpose of LSA is to encourage social, cultural, political and professional programming for USC Latino students. Below you will find Cynthia’s publicity efforts on many of LSA’s events for the 2011 – 2012 school year. You can also find her LSA event recaps here.

In addition, she was also the production coordinator for TEDxUSC 2012, handling Annenberg TV News (ATVN) visit to the conference. TEDxUSC is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxUSC is the first ever in the TEDx series (started in 2009). The conference is ran by USC Stevens Center for Innovation, a university-wide resource for USC innovators in the office of the Provost, where Cynthia has worked since Fall 2011. She started as the Multimedia Student Associate and quickly jumped into the role of Project Coordinator.

In addition , in Fall 2012 as Project Coordinator at USC Stevens, Cynthia was the student outreach coordinator for the USC Student Innovator Showcase and in charge of school media, which you will see below under the Daily Trojan.
