Hey, Hi, Hello!
I’m Ciara, a writer, content creator & university student residing in South Georgia. When I’m not learning about PR, I put what I have learned into practice as the Public Relations & Marketing Intern at LAMP Valdosta, Walker Communications Chair for the VSU Out of Darkness Walk, the Public Relations Director of ROYALS (Raising Our Youth As Leaders) and the outgoing 2016 – 2017 President of the V-State Chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). I previously served as a Content Creation Intern for Koreaboo and a Staff Writer for Asia 24/7. Besides my extracurricular activities, I also work as a part time Mobile Consultant at Best Buy as well as sharing my journey as the Editor-in-Chief of my blog, VI:XI (pronounced Six Eleven).
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 showing up for yourself.
