Hello, I’m Alex Washington, a public relations senior and the 2011-2012 Social Media Director for Wayne State University’s PRSSA chapter. My public relations experience is limited to helping plan, promote and work concerts and events including Mike Posner, Big Sean, Two Write Love on Her Arms and Fabolous at my previous school.
While I am fairly new to PR, I am no stranger to the communications field. Initially I entered college studying journalism and have worked as an apprentice at the Detroit Free Press, started my own music blog and currently freelance for Real Detroit Weekly. Ultimately, I’d like to do social media marketing for a company or go into entertainment PR.
This year, I’d like to help boost WSU PRSSA’s online presence even further while
showing the importance of social media skills to members. The one thing I’m looking forward to the most is meeting the new members this fall.
