The ninth membership spotlight of the spring semester is Maxley Kittiver, a freshman majoring in public relations. This is Maxley’s first semester as a member of PRSSA and she is already a stand-out member of our chapter! Maxley can often be found attending PRSSA events and bonding with other members.
Here is a Q&A session with Maxley:
Q: Where are you from? What is your major/minor?
A: I am from Annapolis, Md. and I am a recent convert from an Advertising major to a Public Relations major.
Q: Why do you love PRSSA? What do you hope to get out of it?
A: I love PRSSA because everyone involved is so kind and wants to give advice to people like me who are just starting out within PR. Since becoming a member I have learned so much and have been become involved with things I never would have been able to if I wasn’t in PRSSA.
Q: What committee are you a part of? What have you done with this committee?
A: Since the beginning of the semester I have been working with the conference committee, specifically the hospitality committee for the conference. I wanted to become involved with this committee because I am interested in exploring event planning as a part of PR.
Q: What PRSSA events have you participated in?
A: I am in the mentorship program and so I attended the first mentorship event where I met my mentor and a lot of other people within PRSSA. I recently went on the agency tour to SEER Interactive as well.
Q: What other TU organizations are you a part of?
A: Besides PRSSA, I am also involved with the living learning community for media and communications.
Q: What is the coolest place you’ve ever visited?
A: Los Angeles! My sister lives there and over winter break I went to go visit her. I love that city and I can’t wait to go back so that I can explore more.
Q: Favorite social media platform and why?
A: My favorite social media platform is Twitter because it is where I get a lot of my news. I also think that the culture of Twitter inspires people to more authentic than they would be on Instagram or Snapchat.
Q: Dream job?
A: My “dream job” is something that I’m still figuring out. I don’t have anything specific that I think I would want to do but my dream job would be working for a company that I really believe in and enjoying working for.
