Meet Our Executive Board
Belinda Wallace is a native Atlanta resident with roots in the Bay Area of northern California. She comes from a family of java developers and entrepreneurs which eventually led her to her interest in tech. She is a junior at Georgia State studying Computer Information Systems with a concentration in Process Innovation. She worked with Aflac's Technology Business Management & Service Delivery team, first as an intern and then as a certified TBMA 2018 Co-op. She is a recipient of the largest scholarship offered at the J. Mack Robinson College of Business, and an alumna of two Georgia State Signature Programs, Panthers in the Valley (2017) and WomenLead (2018). She first joined AIS to get further involved with the CIS department, but soon found herself passionate for the organization and determined to see it grow and prosper.
“I actually first heard about AIS from a classmate and had only attended one meeting before I learned there was a Secretary position opening up for the next semester. My classmate urged me to apply, but I initially hesitated since I had little prior experience with AIS. Making the decision to apply for Secretary was a big step for me, and represents one of the first times I stepped out of my comfort zone to work for something that I was unsure of being qualified to do. This first step led to many more down the road, and is a big reason I am able to serve as President today. I’m thankful to be a part of such an incredible organization and my goal is to make every CIS Major at Georgia State feel the same impact that I feel every day from being a member of AIS.”

“I was lost early on in my educational career, I knew I wanted to do CIS but I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted to do. The AIS info session was such a great event that provided me one on one guidance and helped me to choose the path I wanted to take. I want to take my experiences from the corporate world and implement an open-door policy for all members to feel comfortable to reach out about any educational issues they may have and help cultivate more of an community for our members.”
