I am a junior at the University of Oregon majoring in public relations and minoring in business administration. On June 2013, my journey through college marks its end as I become a college graduate. In the future, I aspire to do agency PR in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, or New York in a position that would include event planning.
On August 2010, I engaged in my first public relations experience as the campaign spokesperson for SBC Marketing. As a prospective sophomore, I had little knowledge of public relations. However, the exposure to promotion and the satisfying result of a large number of people engaging in a seminar I publicized sparked my passion for event coordination.
After my sophomore year of college, I attained my first official internship during the summer of 2011 for the nonprofit agency, A Family for Every Child. As the social media and event planning intern, I utilized Twitter, Facebook, and the company’s Web page to raise awareness of adoption while helping coordinate events.
Currently, I am the supervisor of event planning for UO PRSSA and have been an active member for two years. Along with the knowledge I attain as a PRSSA member, I continue to strengthen my PR skills as the publicity chair for Relay for Life.
Although my collegiate years involve exploring the Oregonian lifestyle, I am from San Francisco and will always have a place in my heart for California.
Since I was 2 years old, I have been a passionate dancer. Having performed ballet, jazz, and contemporary styles for 17 years, dance has become a part of my daily routine and a great escape outlet in my life.
