It doesn't take more than one succinct sentence for Webster University alumna Alexandria McCuien to describe her lifestyle.
Any extensive conversation with McCuien, BS '11, MBA '15, leads the participating party to the same four-word conclusion McCuien humbly uses to summarize herself. Fresh off the completion of her master's degree, McCuien was quick to give back because Webster had so well provided on her behalf. McCuien received five scholarships to attend Webster, including the Fox Family Scholarship and the Minority Female Boeing Company Scholarship. When she mingled with benefactors as a scholarship recipient at the annual (Daniel) Webster Society dinner, McCuien knew she wanted to one day be in their shoes, a feat she has already accomplished at 29 years old. "I've always been a person who tries to give back. I like to help when I can," McCuien said. McCuien grew up in a single-parent home, learning the meaning of perseverance and giving from her mother, Jacqueline. But it takes a village, and members of Shalom Church (City of Peace) in Florissant, Mo. were happy to step up and become a second family to McCuien. Both her mother and church instilled a sense of generosity in McCuien from the get-go, as community service projects were the norm at Shalom. "That's probably what has made me a giver - knowing how much my mom sacrificed for me just so I can have some opportunities," McCuien said. McCuien received ample financial support from Webster, which helped make the university an easy selection for her after she graduated from Alton High School (Ill.) with high academic honors. McCuien began attending Webster in 2006 and has been enrolled in classes at the institution ever since. After earning a bachelor's in computer science and a master's in business administration, McCuien is now working toward a certificate in cybersecurity. Webster's small class sizes and numerous opportunities to get involved were factors that drew McCuien to Webster. "When I went on a tour of the campus it really felt like home already," McCuien said. "There was also a Shalom church member who worked at the university at the time. The people he introduced me to and had me in contact with beforehand really encouraged me to go there." As a student, McCuien took on leadership positions with the Association for African American Collegians (AAAC) and Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE). She was one of the first individuals to join Student Ambassadors - who serve as representatives for the office of Webster's president - when the program was founded in 2010. Through her work as a Student Ambassador, McCuien learned she might get asked about Webster from a prospective student at any moment. Her passion and dedication in unwaveringly recommending the university led her to being elected to the Webster Alumni Association Board of Directors in the spring of 2015. "I represent Webster University everywhere I go," McCuien said. McCuien was a major reason the project succeeded. "The statue was something that was precious to Student Ambassadors. I knew I was going to give, I just didn't know when," McCuien said. McCuien was ecstatic when she first visited the completed work. At the conclusion of her undergraduate career, McCuien received the Webster Capstone Award for Leadership. She's piled up the accolades since, earning the Webster Alumni Association Graduate Student Leadership Award, the St. Louis American Foundation's Young Leaders Award and the Women of Color STEM Technology Rising Star Award. She's been a part of the Webster Society as a donor since 2015. McCuien jumped into working at AT&T in St. Louis shortly after she graduated in 2010 - it was one of four job offers - and has been at the company ever since. She's a senior specialist - applications developer, a male-dominated industry that McCuien has thrived in. She uses her story to encourage other young females to consider an education and career in a STEM field.
