I remember the summer of 2012 like it was yesterday, because it was the summer that my life changed forever. At the time, I was living Chicago, working at four part-time jobs to pay the bills. I was a year fresh out of college and hopefully that my ‘big break’ would soon come. I went on job interview after job interview for salaried positions in PR. After the tenth interview or so one, I realized my only internship during college wasn’t going to sustain a job in the real world. I quit all but one job and took an unpaid internship at the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago. I decided to make the leap to the epicenter of PR, New York City, to further pursue my dreams.
I came to the epiphany that MWW was just another stepping stone on my journey of becoming a publicist. One of my favorite authors, Dale Carnegie, once said that “Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.” I realized that I can’t stop pursuing my dreams of being a publicist regardless of the obstacles and disappointments that I have faced. My journey to MWW has made the hardworking, determined individual that I am today. I encourage everyone to do the same– not to give up on your dreams regardless of the strife you face along the way. I’m extremely grateful that my journey has led me to MWW, because it is a wonderful opportunity to work with amazing, seasoned professionals. Honestly, I wouldn’t change a thing.
