To secure a Public Relations internship with an organization which will allow me to develop the knowledge, tools and experience I’ve gained from Humber College. I hope to grow as a PR practitioner, Social Media expert, employee and all around individual at my placement.


·Social Media, snowboarding, technology, traveling and experiencing new cultures, trends, health and well-being, nature, new concepts and ideas, hockey, reading and writing.


I am a third year, fifth semester Public Relations student enrolled in an Advanced Diploma program at Humber College and will be interning this coming January 2011.

Social Media has truly changed the way people communicate, I believe that gone are the days of forceful ads’ and controlled messaging. The more we can communicate and interact with our audiences on a two-way system, the stronger our brand, transparency, credibility, customer loyalty, corporate and social responsibilities and revenue will be.

I am seeking a corporation that shares the same passion and values as I do. I strongly believe that true happiness is derived from ones family, friends and workplace experience.

In my spare time when I’m not tweeting or blogging, I enjoy being outdoors, snowboarding, playing hockey, watching trends, reading and photography.
