Media Coordinators (2) Platforms

Clarine Tantowi

Hi Everyone, I’m Clarine (or Clare for short)! I’m a first-year student currently pursuing a double major in Psychology and Cognitive Science. Although I haven’t been previously involved in PSA, I was my high school’s Student Council Co-President and was in a marketing team. Thus, experienced in graphic design and equipped with leadership, marketing, and teamwork abilities, I want to serve as your Media Coordinator this following year. As a Media Coordinator, I would:

  1. Create fun, engaging posts to promote PSA events
  2. Experiment with new kinds of posts (such as more reels) to increase engagement
  3. Continuously iterate and refine the social media strategy based on performance insights and feedback.

Psychology is a discipline I want more people to appreciate and know. If elected, I promise to deliver all of my goals. I’m also the most up-to-date with the latest TikTok trends (obsessed with the cat Chinese song right now), so I know a thing or two about marketing tactics. It would mean a lot if you vote for me 🙂

Jen Oh

Nice to meet you all! My name is Jen, a second-year student specializing in psychology and minoring in linguistics.

Believe it or not, the majority of you reading this passage might have crossed paths with me before. As a secretary, I was in charge of replying to e-mails and designing the posts. Whether you scrolled through your Instagram timeline, or actively emailed us, I was there for you (along with Nichelle). It was a pleasure to make direct and indirect contacts with all of you- it was truly rewarding.

Now, I would like to continue helping you all, making avid efforts to foster a more welcoming environment within the psychology department. As a media coordinator, I plan to:

  1. Work closely with other coordinators for fun and creative promotion ideas 
  2. Frequently ask for suggestions, enabling PSA to be more reflective of the psychology students
  3. Collaborating with other clubs when possible

With my experience as a secretary of PSA, I believe that I will make a great media coordinator who has learned from their past mistakes. Please consider voting for me- I promise you won’t regret it!

Joining the Psychology Student Association represents an exciting opportunity to combine my passion for psychology with my skills in communication and media. Through my experiences, such as co-hosting my podcast, called “UGH! I’M FINE” on Spotify during my last 2 years of high school/IB, I’ve honed my ability to engage with peers on topics related to mental health and navigating high school. In addition to brainstorming topics and producing episodes, I was responsible for creating and managing an Instagram account with a logo, a brand, and stickers to promote our content and reach a wider audience. Leveraging platforms like Canva and Procreate, I designed visuals and posts to enhance our online presence. Additionally, my proficiency in video editing with CapCut enabled me to create engaging TikTok content, remaining up-to-date with fun and entertaining material such as the 2023 recap trend. 

Through effective communication, creativity, and collaboration, I am committed to making a positive impact within the association. I envision utilizing these skills to craft visually compelling and informative content, amplifying the association’s efforts in promoting different events for the psychology community. By actively participating in the PSA, I seek to cultivate increased awareness of future projects of the PSA.
