I am working towards a Bachelor of Art in mass communication at the University of Utah and am pursuing a career in the public relations sector.  My ambition is to work for a non-profit organization after graduation in December 2012.

Being an outgoing and friendly person has enabled me to work independently and in a team environment to accomplish tasks in an organizational manner. Evidence of these skills are portrayed by obtaining an Associate of Science degree, serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, consistently gaining honors recognition for academics and being involved with student government, the Global Health Scholars at the U. of U., the Girl Scouts of Utah and various community organizations.

I will be writing for ‘Lessons’ magazine for the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence at the U.
