“[…] own who you are and don’t be afraid of that.”
“I love painting. My grandma and dad were always big painters, so I got it from them. I did that all throughout high school. I get to use this art in other ways for my future, like designing and marketing.
I’m usually an introverted person so in doing all of these things I have to get out of my comfort zone and be in these leadership positions. It’s helped me grow and really get out of my shell. I talk to people I never would’ve otherwise; it’s really helped my communication skills.
PRSSA is the one I see impacting my future the most. It’s put me on the path of public relations. I always joke that I’m gonna be the future head of marketing at Coca-Cola, so we’ll see.
I’m a really quiet person, but I like to use my creativity and communication skills in different ways that people don’t usually expect.
I’m a big advocate for being who you are. I just think you shouldn’t try to imitate people, but own who you are and don’t be afraid of that. ”
