It took me two years to discover that my academic home was the only building I had yet to visit- the journalism building.

My time at Creighton University has included several opportunities in which I was able to have first-hand experience at Public Relations. For the university I was interviewed as part of an article for the freshman profile. Later the same picture was used by the university in a flier to thank those associated with the university for their financial donations.
Being a member of several student organizations since sophomore year, I have participated in many events from inception to implementation. As MAC representative for CULSA, my responsibility is to announce the upcoming events of the organization to other representatives of student minority organizations. As MAC members, our responsibilities include providing insight/suggestions and/or providing volunteers for events if possible. I have learned to understand the importance of creating unity while also showing the great diversity of various cultures. DiversiTea was an event that represented various cultures through tea. Each student minority organization that participated had a table where students showcased teas related to their culture. The teas were discussed in terms of preparation and importance. Intercultural Expo is a food exhibition held every year during the fall semester in which foods from the various minority student organizations are sold to students and faculty. The event allows participants to experience international culture through taste as well as through performances that occur during the peak hours of the exhibition. I find this type of promotion to be difficult at times when trying to brainstorm fund raising ideas; therefore I am grateful for the meetings.
As a member of CULSA I have been involved in the inception and implementation of several events that occur annually throughout the semester. I have participated in various events such as Las Mananitas, Hot Chocolate and Cake Fund raiser, creation of an altar for Dias de los Muertos , and the Paleta sale and Making Movies concert .
Since I have begun taking class specifically related to my major,a project that encompassed a majority of objectives related to Public Relations, was a group assignment I completed for advertising class. The objective was to create a mock advertising proposal for Nissan in relation to the relaunch of the Nissan Pathfinder. I was heavily involved in the Public Relations portion of the proposal. An project I completed for graphic design allowed my to create my own website based on a historical figure. I decided to build a website that focuses on quotes of Confucius which can be found in Analects written after his teachings.
