Upon my expected graduation on May 14, 2011, I hope to secure an entry level job position in the Public Relations industry. In addition to my completion of a Communications Studies major, I have completed two minors while at Longwood University, Spanish and Leadership Studies. After graduation I hope to complete a translator's examination as to obtain additional foreign language certification that may be put to use during my employment. As a student and professional, I pride myself on my strong writing and speaking skills in not just one, but two languages. I believe that in our nation's current time of change, these proficiencies will be effective in my future employment.
Currently, I am serving as the Public Relations intern for a Farmville non-profit conservation and recreation organization, Friends of the Appomattox River. Additionally, I work as a student office employee in Longwood's HARK Department under the supervision of the Department Secretary and Chair. These internship and employment positions have allowed me the opportunities to apply class work to real world task completion in various employment fields.
