Hey, Hi, Hello!
I’m Ciara, a writer, content creator & recent graduate residing in South Georgia. On December 9, 2017, I graduated with my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication from Valdosta State University. Go Blazers!
In the past, I’ve held various internships and positions. From Public Relations & Marketing Intern at LAMP Valdosta to the Walker Communications Chair for the VSU Out of Darkness Walk and the Public Relations Director of ROYALS (Raising Our Youth As Leaders) and to the 2016 – 2017 President of the V-State Chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). I also served as a Content Creation Intern for Koreaboo and a Staff Writer for Asia 24/7.
Currently, I am seeking a career where I can put to use my skills in public relations, social media, digital marketing, event planning, non-profit PR, advertising and storytelling for continuous improvement.
I believe in being the best you can be, being kind and reaching back to extend a helping hand.
