The SEMpdx board reviewed several submissions for the scholarship and is excited to announce the winner: Selin Sari.  The OSU certificate program is offered online, and consists of 4 courses.

Congratulations to Selin!

Selin Sari scholarship winnerSelin is an exchange student from Stuttgart, Germany, currently studying Marketing and Advertising at Portland State University.  Back home she is a student at the Media University in Stuttgart, studying Online Media Management. While taking the Digital Brand Management certificate courses at PACE, she hopes to get a better understanding of how brands and businesses can be more successful through digital marketing. She is especially interested in how brands create their content and manage it across multiple channels to reach their target audience and how a business can optimize its website and ads to stand out from their competition and drive traffic to their site.

On a personal note, she is very active on social media and is interested to see social media from the business perspective and understand how businesses use different social media platforms to market themselves.

Sari started her first course just after Engage and has this to say about it “Great! It is so much fun! I learned a lot about content strategy and how to take a content inventory and audit. Hallie Janssen is a great instructor and gives very good and helpful feedback. I’m excited for what is about to come.” Selin also go to attend Engage for the first time. “This year was my first time attending Engage! It was awesome. There were so many interesting presentations, I had a hard time deciding which ones to attend. I got so much insight on different topics. My favorite part was meeting people from the field and hearing their stories. Thank you so much for this opportunity! I really appreciate it!.”

Please help us in congratulating Selin!
