- How old are you? I'm 25.
- How did you know you wanted to work in public relations? I was on a plane to Houston, Texas around Christmas time of '12 when I sat next to a young women only a few years older than myself. She saw me working on some PowerPoint slides and began talking about if I was in school, what my major was, and what I wanted to do with it. After listening to me speak, she was really attentive, she spoke about what she graduated with and where she was currently working. She then proceeded to tell me about her work experience. While she was talking about working the Grammy's I sputtered, "I can totally do that!" She replied, while laughing, with, "I think so, too. As you are talking I see a PR girl, not a marketer." She basically opened my eyes up and that's the path I have chosen ever since!
- What is your biggest fear? Forgetting who I am, not staying true to myself, and not becoming successful in my chosen career. I have three, I suppose.
- Is college hard? Truthfully, no. It can be overwhelming if you're talking around 18 (six or so classes) a semester, however. I think the key is time management and having a bit of "me time."
- Where do you live? NYC Metro Area! I live in one of the best places in the world and we literally have everything!
- What jobs can I get to work through college? I advocate nanny and babysitter positions a lot. I do that and am a personal assistant to the same family. It allows for a lot of flexibility, as well as excellent pay and great skills. You have to be a certain kind of person to be able to manage children, homework, activities, and parents!
- What are your hobbies? I love, love, love to read! Seriously, if I could get paid to read smutty romance novels, I would jump at the position. If you've read through the blog, you'll note the list of my favorite romance novels. I have over 400 e-books and over 200 actual books. I have a bit of a problem actually. Barnes and Nobel loves me since I drop over $5,000 a year. I do love music, attending Broadway shows, and just being normal. Netflix is one of my best friends, no joking here.
