Alyssa DeMarco: VP of External Affairs
Alyssa is a Junior New Media major and Psychology minor at SUNY Purchase who sees the world through the lens of her camera. She believes that documenting life's most beautiful events through the arts--visually and musically--is integral to human existence. Leaning towards visual arts, she appreciates concerts and musicians because she tried to play the guitar and probably learned three chords before she gave up and picked her camera back up. She believes that fostering the appreciation and support of the arts in young people is the smartest way to maintain the arts' ability to change the world. Needless to say she's extremely excited to help make an impact in any way she can through Generocksity.
