I'm Rebekah (Becky) O'Connell and will be graduating from Longwood University in May 2011. I will have my BS in Communication Studies with a concentration in Public Relations and Organizational Communication and a minor in Psychology. I have excellent organizational and planning skills. I have been in leadership roles for group projects and have served on the executive boards for extracurricular activities. Though I have served in leadership roles and have learned how to manage a team, I also do well being a group member and work well with my colleagues. I am seeking a career in event promotions and am excited about entering the work force!
