I’ve never been a person who has stayed in one place for very long. In high school, I traveled to Europe for three weeks with a group of students that I met a few short times before we hopped on the airplane. When it was time to submit college applications, I watched all my friends apply to state schools while I visited ten different colleges, all ten of them being out of state. During my four years at Elon University in North Carolina, I left the confines of my college bubble to live in Argentina for over five months. Most recently, I relocated to Indianapolis by myself.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my family and have the best friends. But for me, the risk, the adrenaline, the rush and the huge leap of faith that comes with new experiences are what keep me constantly searching for more. I view change as the catalyst for growth, and my need for change is what drew me into the ever evolving field of public relations.
PR professionals take what they are given and mold the material into something creative, beautiful and brilliant. PR pros are hardworking and passionate. Their talent is wrought with flexibility and adaptability. The PR field is constantly changing, moving and growing (hello, social media!) This air of change, passion, creativity and adaptability is what drives me.
As the new intern here at Dittoe PR, I’m looking to develop into the best PR pro I can be. Despite my best intentions, the only thing that I can plan for is change, itself. There is so much to learn in the field of public relations. You better believe that I am ready for it!
