Objective

To obtain an entry-level position in Advertising and Public Relations where I can utilize my experience with social media towards the creation of innovative and effective promotional strategies 

Summary

As a recent college graduate with a B.A. in Psychology, I am a self-proclaimed social networking expert focused on pursuing careers in Advertising and Public Relations where I can develop my creative skills in social media, writing, and business. 

I been on the Least coast for the past four years,

Transitionin’ to Wasps and Vineyard Vines had me ‘bout reduced to tears,

But as a Bay Girl on the wrong side,

I gotta say I learned a few things on this crazy ride,

Now it’s about that time, the first week of May,

Can’t believe so soon I’ll be back in the Bay,

Driftin’ through the wreckage of a post-Floralia scene,

I think like Biggie it was all a dream,

Trippin’ on a Dubra handle I stop and reminisce,

Bout’ all the things I’m gonna hella miss,

Sure the East has its share of preps and other crazy wack shit,

I mean Red Sox obsessions are mad ridic,

Wired on Adderall cracked out in the lib,

Mixed emotions ‘bout the ‘Sco and moving back to the crib,

Now it’s gettin’ kinda hard to rep the West and stay chill, 

My rhymes got me flustered and def far from ill,

Picturin’ those immoral nights and awk’ walks of shame,

I just hope this institution don’t forget my name.
