Public Relations, Event Planning, and Youth
You read it right! Public Relations, Event Planning, and Youth!! These are my three areas of interest where this blog will be focused on. Although it sounds like a lot to handle all at once, with time it will be narrowed down. I’m the type of person who thinks big and carves things down to one concrete idea. Being a Communications Major, I have been exposed to various areas within this field.
I have gotten an idea of what it would be like to work in Journalism, Broadcasting, and Communications in general. Therefore, my reasons in choosing these areas of interest are as follows:
Public Relations: I am currently interning at a PR firm in San Francisco, I have received a grasp of what my life would be like working for a small yet well established agency. I have proven to myself that I can do this and that I do have potential. I may not have the experience that other PR Specialists do have, however, starting out in my first internship, I feel that I am doing a pretty good job! What attracts me about PR is that it is not about you, it is about them!
Event Planning: Back in 2009, I worked for a small business that hosted children birthday parties. It was a warehouse filled with inflatable jumpers in the main room. Being the host for all birthday parties that I personally booked, was where I discovered my abilities not just as a host, but as a small event planner. Birthday parties are just one example of planning out an event, and working at a place like that was definitely a fun and ecstatic experience! I love to plan and organize things, but especially meet the new and exciting people who I come across with!
Youth: Since the age of 17, I have worked with youth in the small town where I’m from. I interact well with teenagers ranging between 13 and 17 years old and also with young adult youth ranging between 18 to 24. I have the type of personality that can accommodate to all different styles and cultures that I meet. I have the skills to talk to youth in a way that they listen to me and I listen to them!
These three areas of interest work well with me, which is why this blog will have exciting posts coming your way SOON!!
