I had the opportunity to attend a student media briefing with Interim President, Dr. Michael Bernstein on Wednesday, Dec. 4 with Editor in Chief of The Statesman, Gary Ghayrat and Assistant News Editor, Maya Brown. The briefing consisted of other campus media outlets along with The Statesman, and other members of Bernstein’s team, such as University Media Relations Officer, Lauren Sheprow.

Maame-Esi Otoo is the only female on the Undergraduate Student Government’s seven-member Executive Council.
Otoo, a senior business major, is the vice president of Clubs and Organizations, and she “know[s] how to do the job.”
