As a rising senior psychology major, Briana Bouldin has pursued leadership roles in many worthwhile endeavors, most notably as orientation student director for Setting Sail freshman orientation. “I oversee the Crew Leaders for Setting Sail and a fresh, innovative perspective is my unique addition to the student director team,” she explains.

Besides training new crew leaders, Bouldin found another role as a member of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). The Council, a collaborative organization of nine historically African-American, international fraternities and sororities, includes Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, of which Bouldin is a member. “I was fortunate enough to grow up with my mother being an Alpha Kappa Alpha woman,” she says. “So, I was definitely exposed to my sorority’s values and community impact at a young age.”

To cap off her junior year at Christopher Newport, Briana took on another position as a Boys and Girls Club intern. Among other initiatives, this nonprofit organization runs after-school programs that help kids develop essential career skills. Bouldin was community outreach and marketing research intern. “While working for the Boys and Girls Club, I gained skills in office management and fundraising, as well as a broader understanding of how nonprofits run administratively,” she says. “There were also multiple CNU alumni networking opportunities that reached back to campus and reaffirmed how great it is to be a lifelong Captain.”
