BU PRSSA helped me to establish a professional network, think deeply about various careers in public relations, and gain hands on experience. As agency director of Unleashed, I was able to collaborate with clients, create top-notch deliverables, and manage a team of my peers. These skill set that I build during this tenure has been invaluable to me as I begin in my career.

Being in BU PRSSA was foundational to helping me learn how to network. It's an essential skill that has helped me to better connect with professionals as well as other peers. I served as the Conference Coordinator for a year and had so much fun in the role! I got to try out event planning, network with industry professionals, and made a lot of new friends along the way!

BU PRSSA has provided me so many opportunities, especially through meeting industry professionals and build relationships with professionals in areas I am interested in. BU PRSSA’s student-run firm, Unleashed PR, has also enhanced my PR skills and resume tremendously, as I have worked in many areas of PR before even having a full-time job. As agency director for Unleashed PR, I have become familiar with all of the clients and practice areas.

BU PRSSA helped me gain so much confidence in myself. I have met so many wonderful peers, faculty, and leaders in PR who have given me fantastic advice and opportunities to learn the ropes of the PR industry. Additionally, as President of BU PRSSA, I learned how to be not only a team leader but also a team player, something that has taught me so much and has helped me launch my career in PR.
