The fifth membership spotlight of the year is Lindsey Danasko, a freshman majoring in public relations and minoring in communication studies. This is Lindsey’s first year as a member of PRSSA and she is already a very committed member of our chapter. Lindsey can often be found attending all of the outside events PRSSA has to offer and networking with professionals and peers!
Here is a Q&A session with Lindsey:
Q: Where are you from?
A: I am from a really small town in Montgomery County, PA. It's about 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia.
Q: Why do you love PRSSA? What do you hope to get out of it?
A: I love PRSSA because it has given me such a jump-start to my career. I also love this organization because I have made some awesome friends and have been given the ability to network with so many awesome people in the Philadelphia area. What I hope to get out of PRSSA is a high number of connections and a better understanding of what I want for myself in the future.
Q: What have you done with the Community Service committee?
A: Currently with the community service committee, I have helped come up with ideas and different events that we can do as both an organization and a committee that will help benefit the community in Philadelphia.
Q: What PRSSA events have you participated in?
A: I have actually participated in a bunch of PRSSA events. The first event was with the community service committee, and it was going to an event call the Butterfly Ball to help raise money for breast cancer. I also took part in the mentor/mentee event PRSSA held at the end of October to help us all bond. More recently I went to the networking event with Bloomsburg PRSSA where we gave them a tour of our campus and what we do and afterward headed into the city to grab some dinner and talk about our plans. The last event I’ve done with Temple PRSSA is going on the Bellevue Communications tour! Although we had to drag ourselves through the cold snow, it was an awesome opportunity to learn more about agency life and potential job opportunities in the future!
Q: What other TU organizations are you a part of?
A: I am not part of many of Temple's organizations, but I just joined Diamond Winterguard which is Temple's indoor color guard team!
Q: What is the coolest place you’ve ever visited?
A: I think the coolest place I have traveled is to Niagara Falls, Canada. It was such a pretty trip with my family and it was an awesome experience. I think that trip has to tie with a Disney cruise to the Bahamas, because what can I say, I'm not just a city girl, I'm also a beach girl!
Q: Favorite social media platform and why?
A: My favorite social media is definitely Instagram! It is a way that I can express myself and my love for photography all while creating a network with not only my friends but professionals and potential employers. It's also a great plug for my YouTube channel.
Q: Dream job?
A: My dream job is definitely working with a makeup company and doing their social media. I am so obsessed with makeup, so working with any makeup company would for sure be a dream come true for me!
