Alexzandria Cormier-Hill (C.Hill) is an adamant advocate of learning, creativity, and leadership. During her time at the University of North Texas, Alexz participated in numerous opportunities that championed topics such as education, diversity and youth mentorship. She served as an ambassador for UNT’s Professional Leadership Program, Black Enterprise Magazine, Monster.com’s Diversity Leadership Conference, YES Prep’s Alumni Association and the Mickey Leland Kibbutzim Internship Foundation. As the Current Events/Hot Topics event planner for the University’s Programming Council and Marketing Director of her undergraduate chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc, Alexz developed a calling to create unique, encouraging narratives about Millennials and their capacity to take active leadership.
After graduating with her B.A. in Marketing, Alexz catapulted into her career. She’s helped develop the brand for the Houston’s Mayor's Office of Education Initiatives, a multi-million dollar start up, and the award-winning charter school system YES Prep Public Schools (which happens to be her grade school alma mater.) She started her blog, DPTaughtMe, in 2014 as a way to address her passion and concern for Greek Leadership through sharing her experiences in hopes of cultivating young, Greek movers and shakers of the next generation. Currently, Alexz is working in higher education, helps budding entrepreneurs define and refine their brand through her branding boutique Narrative Cre8or, serves on the board for Houston African American Bloggers, guest writes for the popular NPHC platform Watch The Yard, and continues to share her love for youth development and leadership to whoever will have her.
