Why did you choose to major in communications?

I’m an advertising/public relations major and I chose to major in this field because I love the idea of communicating directly to consumers and being able to do so creatively. This major was the perfect fit!

Have you completed any internships? If so, where and what was the most valuable thing you learned?

I have completed four internships and one of the biggest things I’ve learned was the importance of communication, asking questions and prioritizing. I’ve interned at the following organizations: Office of Student Involvement at UCF, GreenHouse Agency, Florida Cruise Ports and Dentsu Aegis Network in New York via the MAIP program.

What would you like to do professionally?

I would love to do some kind of marketing or advertising in the entertainment industry, especially in music.
