About

My name is Alessandra “Ali” Quintero and I am a senior at Southern Methodist University. I am currently working towards my Bachelor of Arts Degree’s in Fashion Media and Journalism and double minoring in Ethics and Sociology. Although I graduated in May 2019, I will not be completed with my classes until July 2019. Throughout my high school and college years, I have interned at many companies in different industries. While taking upper level courses at SMU, I found my passion for Journalism. 

As a freshman, I was invited to join SMU’s Rotunda Academic Scholars and remained a member until expected graduation in May, 2019. This program searched for in-coming students who had previous leadership roles in their communities. Through this program, I learned about the importance of leadership, service, and diversity. During my junior year, I joined Turning Point USA on campus and became Secretary of the club. While taking courses for my majors, I wrote articles for SMU Look, a student-run magazine. In November 2017, I started my own small business, Lone Star Boxes, as a personal venture during my college years. I learned about running a business, including how to use Quickbooks, how to run a company’s social media-including Facebook and Instagram, how to create a website, and much more. Lone Star Boxes donated 10% of the proceeds to various local organizations, such as Genesis Women’s Shelter and Big Brothers Big Sisters. I closed the company before graduation to focus on my career in Journalism. As a senior, I worked as a crew member of SMU-TV’s produced daily news show, The Daily Update, where I tried various positions including Director, Producer, Floor Director, Technical Director, Audio, Server, and Cameras. I also wrote at least two stories every week for the show. Additionally, I co-founded SMU Humans during my senior year, which has its own section within SMU Daily Campus’ website. I worked as a videographer for SMU Humans and produced multiple videos for the Instagram account. SMU Humans was created as a platform for students to share their stories and unique experiences. Over winter break during my senior year, I had the opportunity to shadow Executive Producers at Wink News in Fort Myers, Florida and Daily Flash TV in Miami, Florida.
