Informing, creating and developing are some of my top values when it comes to my work as a journalist. Working as an editorial intern for Delaware Today Magazine was an amazing and enjoyable experience which exposed me to field interviews, editing, fact checking and making connections in order to grow my brand.
I've graduated from the University of Delaware in May 2022, obtaining a bachelor of arts degree in English with minors in journalism and fashion management. Since then, I have begun my journey in a career of communications and public relations as a full-time publicist for MB and Associates PR, located in Marlton, NJ. I am excited to start this new journey to expand my experience in communications outside of just writing. In addition to being creative and driven, I bring a hardworking attitude to the table and am always looking for a new challenge!
I was first exposed to the world of fashion and entertainment at a rather young age. I lived with my single mother and we would look forward to watching awards shows like the Emmy Awards, the Academy Awards and the SAG Awards every year. As I got older, I became more interested in the actors themselves. It became a tradition for me to go to the movie theatre almost every week during winter break to see every movie that was nominated for Best Picture and all I ever wanted to do was talk and write about the actors from those films, so much that I found myself watching interviews on YouTube and reading film reviews and interviews all the time, especially from sources like The Wrap, Deadline, Vanity Fair and Entertainment Weekly.
Some specific skills that I possess include writing, editing, interpreting and/or critiquing words, following specific directions in a neat and organized fashion, comfortably speaking to others who I am unfamiliar with, completing tasks both individually and as a team, checking my work as well as others’ work, being eager to learn, researching and observing. I have learned in my many years of working in the retail industry and the restaurant industry part-time how important it is to help others and work as a team while also staying focused on the task at hand and remaining organized in times of stress and confusion. While revisiting my previous experiences and thinking about what I am the most passionate about, I can confidently say that I am thoroughly interested in working as a journalist for entertainment news. What I desire to do is to be able to network with others in the entertainment industry to become familiar with the role or project they are currently working on, or looking forward to, in order to inform people like myself, who look forward to learning more about their favorite celebrities and their upcoming projects. I have this feeling that I need to give back to the industry that made me a lot of who I am today and that inspired me to always work hard for the things that I am passionate about.
