I am in my fourth and final year at the University of Rhode Island, majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Spanish. I have found that I always pushed myself and worked hard when it came to my education because in the end, I knew it would be rewarding. Connecting with people and communicating with them has always been something that came easy to me. My classes at the University of Rhode Island have helped me to refine those skills and then some. My interest in talking to people led me down the communications path, eventually getting me into Public Relations. As a PR student, I have been able to learn a number of different aspects of the business, from press release writing to event planning. After taking the necessary classes and participating in my full spring semester internship at 95.5 WBRU in the Promotions Department, I know that Public Relations is the career path for me!
