Suna Njie brings her own sense of culture, style, poise and intelligence to the coveted title. All the way from Gambia, Africa, by way of Atlanta, Georgia, Suna strives to be a leader with purpose, while serving her fellow students proudly.
A graduate of Westlake High School in Atlanta, Georgia, Suna utilized the slogan, “See Me,” during her campaign for the Miss ASU title. She says, “I plan to emphasize the slogan throughout the year by encouraging students to step into the limelight of success strategically despite the inevitable struggles they will face.”
Suna is deeply indebted to Alabama State University and demonstrates that constantly as she speaks about the opportunities that she has received as a student, as well as the academic scholarship that she earned to ensure that she was formally educated – both inside and outside of the classroom.
According to the future scientist and medical doctor, Suna notes, “I believe that Alabama State University students should be prepared for their dynamic path to greatness through the five initiatives of education, environment, empowerment, experience and embodiment.”
She wants students to become uncomfortable with complacency, to break barriers and actually be the change they want to observe. She says, “My purpose is not to implement change, but rather to motivate it within students. In this way, our institution is in the hands of diverse, innovative and prepared students who are armed and ready to weather any storm that will come.”
Suna has held several leadership positions at ASU, including president of ELITE Models, vice president of Beta Kappa Chi National Science Honors Society, ASPIRE and Miss W.E.B. Dubois Honors Program. She says that each of these positions has taught her one key factor: Success is a holistic journey.
Despite her busy schedule, Suna has remained a scholar with a 3.96 grade point average; but she still makes time for mentoring and tutoring activities.
Suna is the daughter of Assan Njie and Medina Deen-Njie, and the niece of Ebrima Sosseh and Fatou Nyang.
Her favorite quote is “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear,” by Meg Cabot.
