Hi! My name is Sophie Ciardullo and I am running to be your VP Communications on the 2021-2022 MES Council! I am currently in my fourth year of Computer Engineering and will be graduating in 2023 with a minor in Economics. I have been involved with the MES since my second year in MacEng, this year as one of the Social Media & Website Coordinators. In this role, I worked closely with the current VPC and learned a lot both about the role of VPC and the MES at large.
I have three main values that I am addressing in my platform: Outreach, Cohesion, and Simplicity. One of the things I really want to improve as VP Communications is the way new information is shared and communicated. Currently, the responsibility is on students to be actively checking the social media accounts for updates, but I strongly believe a direct form of communication about specific topics of interest via email would hugely benefit students in MacEng.
I plan to move forward with the same branding put in place by this year’s VPC and incorporate the branding more into advertisements from affiliated clubs/teams through clear communication and by offering to make advertisements within a specified time frame. To be able to offer this, I plan to have more graphic designers on the advertising committee.
