Alexander Star, B.A., a 2012 graduate of the communications program in NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS), was a speaker as well as the featured keynote performer at the United Nations during the 7th Annual Millennium Campus Conference. Star performed for three nights, including performing his song, “Forever Wave,” as the finale for the conference. The conference featured a number of speakers including performer and former NFL player, Terry Crews, H.E. Mr. Mogens Lykketoft, President-elect of the 70th Session, UN General Assembly, and Assistant Secretary General, UN, Lakshmi Puri.

“As a proud NSU Alumnus, I’m actively engaged in a number of professional endeavors that will shine a positive light on my alma mater,” Star said.

The conference hosts student leaders and world leaders from over 50 countries to collaborate on ways to aid global development. This resonates with Star, a professional song writer and recording artist with a passion to positively impact and inspire young people. Star’s involvement with young people spans the globe. He is the Chief Brand Ambassador of AFR Clothing, which donates 20% of its profits to defray the school tuition fees for underprivileged children in Africa, through its nonprofit Amani Hope Foundation. The foundation created the Amani Hope Tour to bring their message of hope and inspiration on campuses in the US and abroad. In addition, Star teaches songwriting and lyrical expression to inner-city youth at The Motivational Edge in Miami. There he emphasizes quality musical expression without the use of profanity, recklessness, or the degradation of women. Last year, Star teamed up with UNICEF and MCN to create his music video, “This is My Era,” filmed all over the world.
