We recently connected with our latest cohort of D+P interns for a quick Q&A session. Read on below to learn more about Reilly, one of our Fall Public Relation Interns!
Give us a little bit of background about yourself!
I am a senior at Temple University majoring in public relations with an international communication concentration. At Temple, I am the director of mentorship for Temple’s PRSSA chapter and an account executive for the student-run firm, PRowl Public Relations. I’m from Easton, Maryland, a small town, but love city living and spend a lot of my free time exploring Philly and trying new restaurants with friends.
Describe yourself in three words.
Ambitious, reliable and intuitive.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
When I was really young, I loved movies so much that I wanted to be a director. However, I learned about public relations in middle school, and it has been my dream career pursuit ever since!
What’s something few people knew about you, but you wish they did?
I love learning and immersing myself in different cultures, and I am currently undertaking the challenge of learning Spanish!
If you could give a piece of advice to your high school/younger self, what would it be?
Complaining is unproductive. When you’re dissatisfied with something, take action and make a change!
