Welcome to my personal website! I am a sophomore at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in public relations. As a full-time student, I have balanced schoolwork with being heavily involved in multicultural and service-oriented campus organizations, such as the Black History Month Committee and The Carolina Experience Living Learning Community. My coursework combined with my community involvement has made me a more enthusiastic and energetic person that enjoys solving problems and is always curious to know what's next. In the future, I aspire to be a public relations account executive in the entertainment industry, but for now, I am seeking internship opportunities.
Since my junior year in high school, I have taken on tasks that have furthered my leadership skills and affirmed my interests in helping others, learning about the history of different cultures and planning events. While participating in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, I worked with other strong-spirited students to develop a global perspective on academics and public service. This experience shaped my abilities and love for working with people of diverse backgrounds. Though I enjoy teamwork, I can get down to business while working independently. This school year, along with continuing a couple of my previous roles on campus, I serve as a University Career Services Career Peer and a Carolina Athletic Association Campus Relations committee member to expand my public relations and marketing abilities.
Whether you are a family member, classmate, professor or potential employer, I want you to see the hard work I have put in over the past few years and how it has cultivated my personal growth. With this website I am looking to display my personal brand and share my experience and knowledge. Please feel free to contact me and give any criticisms and/or suggestions. I always keep an open ear and appreciate feedback.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me (:
