Members of Sacred Heart University’s faculty and staff recently had the chance to meet and exchange information with Yin Myo Su, called Misuu, as part of Fortune magazine and the U.S. State Department’s Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership. Misuu, who is managing director of the Inle Princess Resort Hotel in Burma, was mentored by Yvonne Hickey of Xerox and spent her time participating in meetings and spending one-on-one time with Xerox executives in both Rochester, NY, and Norwalk. She also had time to meet with other local executives, Connecticut’s Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman and visit Sacred Heart.

MisuuMisuu’s visit to SHU was her first time on a traditional university campus. While here, she met with Mary Lou DeRosa, vice provost for Special Academic Affairs; Father Anthony Ciorra, assistant vice president for Mission & Catholic Identity; Andrea Bertolozzi, academic advisor and recruiter; and Samantha Pitler, coordinator for English and a Second Language.

“The visit gave us the opportunity to exchange information with Misuu and for all of us to learn something,” DeRosa said. “We were pleased to introduce Misuu to everything an American university has to offer and are grateful to Yvonne Hickey of Xerox for facilitating the visit.” Hickey recently joined the Board of Directors of Sacred Heart’s Horizons Program.
