Interest

My absolute passion in life is traveling. My interest for traveling sparked after my trip France and Spain trip in grade 10. While there, I realized how truly diverse the world is. You get completely different vibe when you're in Paris than anywhere else, and I can only imagine that unique feeling would correspond with many of the beautiful destinations the world has to offer. I am fortunate enough that my father was born in Ireland, so I am currently in the process of obtaining my Irish citizenship. I have strong ties to my family's heritage and I would love the opportunity to complete an internship in Ireland. My another passion in life is photography. I am by no means an expert, for me it's about catching life standing still;capturing that one moment in time, just a snippet of the universe, and I have it forever. I love spending my days off discovering new and interesting things to capture. 

Objective

To obtain a rewarding internship in an industry leading PR agency that allows me the opportunity to expand my skills set for a successful career in the marketing and communications field. 

Summary

I'm a third-year public relations student from the university of Guelph-Humber. I recently found that my life can be quickly defined in one of my favorite songs. That song is "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey. Lyrics such as "just a small town girl, living in a lonely world" and "she took the midnight train goin' anywhere," describe where I am in life. I want to travel and see the world. I want to experience where my father grew up, and what the whole world has to offer me. I am only 21 years old, I have a lifetime a head of me to decide what I am doing and where I will be for the rest of my life. I am branding myself as a believer. By branding myself as a believer, I let you know that I am open to any experience. I believe there are a million life experiences out there just waiting for me to discover. I'm "... searching in the night" for who I am. Right now I'm a believer in following my passion, in the future I may be a believer in Public Relations with a social responsibility. It's too soon to tell.
