Q: Why do you love PRSSA? What do you hope to get out of it?
A: I love PRSSA because everyone involved is very supportive and encouraging. People really want to see you do well and accomplish your goals, and are always willing to help you with professional development and with any class things as well! With PRSSA I hope to develop better relationships with my peers in the PR field, as well as learn more about the field in general.
Q: What committee are you a part of? What have you done with this committee?

Q: Favorite social media platform and why?
A: My favorite social media platform is Twitter. I think it's a great platform for staying in touch with the news, but it also is more relaxed and humorous than other social media platforms.
Q: Dream job?
