Summary

Currently a student in the Public Relations Certificate Program at Humber College, I have learned how to communicate effectively both orally and in writing. I have working experience: using social media as a tactic for communicating, how to develop a communication plan to effectively implement ideas, and through an extensive writing lab, have learned how to write and present corporate material. I am organized and highly motivated to complete tasks assigned. My goal is to work for a public relations agency specializing in consumer products.
