Milagros Orcoyen, Public Relations Student Society of America’s (PRSSA) 2024-2025 National President, is a senior at Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE) in Buenos Aires, Argentina, poised to graduate in December 2024 with a major in public relations and institutional communication.

Milagros’ journey with PRSSA began her freshman year, driven by a desire to gain preprofessional experience and connect with like-minded individuals. 

Milagros served as the PRSSA National Vice President of Events and Fundraising for the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 terms. In April 2023, she received The Elaine Averick Outstanding National Committee Member Award in recognition of her dedicated service to the National Committee and members of PRSSA.

As National President, Milagros is committed to empowering students to excel in the ever-evolving field of public relations. In her role, she works alongside a talented team to lead initiatives that bridge the gap between academic learning and professional practice. Her responsibilities include strategic planning, overseeing international events and ensuring members have access to valuable resources and growth opportunities.

Beyond her PRSSA commitments, Milagros dedicates her time to making a difference in her community. She volunteers at GEO, the sustainable development center at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), and serves as a writer at The Jane Goodall Institute Argentina. Additionally, her involvement in the Professional Council for Public Relations of Argentina further reflects her commitment to advancing the field.
