Interest

I enjoy sports, music, reading, and writing. Currently, I am very interested in traveling. I like meeting new people, trying new things, and challenging myself in new environments. I love learning about other countries' customs, traditions, and lifestyles. 

Summary

Hello! My name is Laura Modjeski. I recently graduated from the University of Oregon in June with degrees in Journalism, with an emphasis in public relations, and Spanish. I also earned a minor in Business Administration.

I am eager to apply my public relations skills that I have learned in the classroom to real world situations. I strive to make a difference in this field and know that my strategic thinking and self-motivation will help me accomplish this goal.  

I hope to find a job that combines my public relations and spanish skills. I am interested in working for a nonprofit or international organization. 

My creativity, dependability, and desire to succeed will make me an asset to your organization. 

Thank you for your time and consideration.
