My name is Chloe English. I am a senior majoring in advertising and public relations and I am your new VP of Professional Development for 2018-2019. This is my first form of valuable experience! Before I ran for this position, I was a devoted member to PRSSA.
I am most definitely a go-getter; I’m not the type to sit on the sidelines and watch other people make the most out of their experiences. I am assertive in both my professional and personal life, but I try to execute that in the most graceful way. I know this is the biggest cliché, but I aspire to be an excellent communicator. To me, that means being direct, specific, and simply black and white. Say what you mean and mean what you say. I think this will help me prosper in my career.
When I decided to run for this position, I was ironically on an agency tour – I believe this position is networking at its finest. It introduces me to a variety of companies and forces me to learn about their culture, because each and every firm has a culture – I find that so interesting. I am eager to see what this position offers me in terms of connections and post-graduation opportunities.
For this chapter, I hope to see more involvement. I am determined to help my fellow E-board members spread the word about PRSSA. This organization sets you up for success in many ways. All you need to do is make time to commit and you will gain invaluable experience one way or another.
As far as free time goes, If I’m not at a library or Starbucks busting out homework/ PRSSA emails, you will find me at a gym or spending time with my rather large and incredible family.
If I have to leave you with a few things about myself, I’ll leave these: Motown aficionado, loyal Detroit Lions fan (Yes, even when Harrington was our QB), extreme coffee snob, dairy-free devotee.
Cheers to a great year ahead, Lakers!
