Graduating in May 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in public relations and a minor in philanthropy and nonprofit studies.
I feel fortunate to have attended a university that places such a high priority on preparing students for their careers. I have spent much more time learning about public relations through hands-on experience than I have spent reading about it in a textbook. Because of this, I feel confident that I am entering the workforce with valuable skills that will help me succeed. I am also grateful for the philanthropy and nonprofit studies program through which I have learned how to turn my passion for giving into a career in order to make the biggest impact possible. Auburn University has taught me the skills I need to start my public relations career in the nonprofit sector.
