HEY, HI, HELLO! IT’S CIARA’S ONLINE PORTFOLIO!

Hey, Hi, Hello!

I’m Ciara, a content creator 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 related to my field. From Public Relations & Marketing Intern at LAMP Valdosta to the Public Relations Director of ROYALS (Raising Our Youth As Leaders) and serving as the 2016 – 2017 President of the V-State Chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). I also put my skills to use as a Content Creation Intern for Koreaboo and a Staff Writer for Asia 24/7.

Currently, I am seeking a career where I can develop and elevate my skills in public relations, media 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.
