I’m Laura and I’m a Communication graduate student at the University of the Pacific. My concentration is in Media and Public Relations. I received my B.A. in English Literature at UC Irvine and upon graduation, I wanted to be a content writer. Though what kind and in what field, I was never certain. By chance, I ended up working at a staffing agency that utilized online video interviews. My job had nothing to do with writing, but I began to see the never ending advancements in communication and its complexities. Fascinated with how companies have reacted to the rise of social media, including this staffing agency, I turned to public relations and that’s where I am now. It is my wish to eventually be a PR content writer, especially in such entertainment industries as comics and gaming, although I’m very much opened to anything.
Outside of academics, I’m a running fanatic, entering at least one race annually. I also like to read an array of books, particularly classic literature, mysteries, thrillers, books on writing, and comics.
