Up until this summer, I really had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I was considering majors like English and business, but I wasn’t sure how to make a living on the first, and the second one didn’t excite me. I am currently in DUS, but I hope to declare a public relations major soon. This really does seem like the perfect fit for me at the moment. I loathe science and although I’m relatively good at math, it doesn’t come naturally for me and I knew I would dread going work everyday if it was a major part of my job. What I like most about public relations is that there’s so much variety within it and it’s easy to find something that fits your interests. Regarding my own passions, I hope to work in entertainment and media public relations. I’ve always loved celebrities and I’m extremely interested in how their image is maintained in topsy turvy Hollywood.
I’ve joined PRSSA and I was thrilled to discover that I was selected to be in Happy Valley Communications on the EcoCAR team. I’m pumped to really see what PR is all about and hope to gain a lot of useful experience. After hearing about the different internships that people have had over the summer and on campus, I can’t wait to hopefully say the same in a few years.
