Going into this project I was very skeptical. For one, when I signed up for Presentation Making in Public Relations I was trying to get over my fear of public speaking. Who knew that this class would give me the keys to how working in the world of PR actually goes.
When I first learned of the project I thought to myself, “I do not like speaking in public let alone talking to a complete group of people I do not know” and two, it seemed like it would be a lot of work. While it is a lot of work I’ve found this project to be very beneficial to me.
Besides speaking and writing I’ve found that going into PR what type of researching and collecting data is really about. I feel more ready than ever to go out into the PR world with the experience to come up with creative and innovative ideas as well as do the research on the road to making those ideas concrete.
I’m glad I let myself take on this challenge!
