A Word from Divya: Hi Everyone! I’m Divya and I couldn’t be more excited to serve as Alpha Lambda Delta’s President for the 2016-2017 school year. I’m a Biological Sciences major interested in pursuing research in the future, and my passion for molecular biology is also paralleled by a love for writing, history, and art. Other than my role as President of ALD, I work as a student researcher in the Molecular and Computational Biology Department, a Resident Assistant for Parkside Arts and Humanities, and I am a part of USC’s Thematic Option Honors Program.
ALD’s events this year will be directed towards celebrating your achievements as ALD members with opportunities to gain exclusive knowledge and guidance from USC’s best professors, resources, and networks. I look forward to working with my amazing team towards another successful year for ALD, but most importantly, I look forward to seeing all of you at our events and getting to know you! Always feel free to reach out to us with any questions, feedback, or even to say hi; we can’t wait to meet you!
A Word from Pooja: I am studying Business Administration and hopefully double minoring in Environmental Studies and Social Entrepreneurship. My dream job is to start a social enterprise that focuses on improving K-12 education or promotes sustainable development. Outside of class and ALD, I am a Marshall Student Ambassador, serve as the Head of Community Service for Rotaract and tutor with Project 32.
This year with ALD, I want to ensure that we put on events that you as members are genuinely interested in, so feel free to reach out with any suggestions for us. We already have a lot of cool events planned, and I’m excited for what is to come this year. See you soon!
Treasurer / Secretary
A Word from Langa: Hi! Thanks for checking us out, it is such an accomplishment that you are a part of ALD. My name is Langa and I am studying accounting with a minor in computer programming. Aside from ALD, I am the founder of a national female empowerment organization WomenSPEAK, a member of the co-Ed entrepreneurship fraternity Sigma Eta Pi, and hopefully will be accepted as a USC tour guide!
In addition to my duties as treasurer, I am excited to actively be involved in planning various social but also beneficial events for you all to enjoy! As a big fan of the outdoors, I hope to bring a little more of the beautiful California weather into our activities, and I can't wait for you to enjoy them.

A Word from Samantha: Hey, everyone! I’m a Neuroscience major and English minor on the pre-med track, trying to find out how to balance my love of science with my love of the humanities. In addition to working with the ALD board, I’ll be conducting Alzheimer’s research and serving as a Resident Assistant for New North this year. I’m very excited to throw events for this great organization, and I can’t wait to meet all new and returning ALD members!
This year, we hope to put together a good mix of both social and professional events, everything from ice-cream meet and greets to resume workshops. We greatly value your input, as, of course, everything we do is directed toward you and your development as student leaders on campus. Looking forward to an amazing year!

A Word from Euri: Hey everyone, my name is Euri Park and I am currently pursuing a Design major with a double minor in Social Entrepreneurship and Entertainment Industry. I am excited to spend this year getting to know all of our members and documenting all the amazing events we have planned for this year. I have a high passion for art and learning. I hope to start my own movie production business or a design firm in the future.
