Hello fellow future public relations professionals! My name is Kate Addy and I will be the Public Relations Director of our chapter of PRSSA during the 2013-2014 school year. I am currently in my senior year at Wayne State University and I look forward to graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in public relations, with a minor in psychology.
I changed my major twice before I chose PR and one of the main reasons I became involved with PRSSA was to help other students, like myself, that weren’t born knowing what they wanted to do for a living. In 2011, I was fortunate enough to become involved with a company, Dirty 313ctronic Productions, that enabled me to grow and learn in the entertainment industry, in the field of public relations. I’m eternally grateful that sheer luck brought me to my passion for communication.
I’ve also had the opportunity to write for the PRSSA quarterly newsletter, Salute, and the Wayne State newspaper, The South End. Through my work I’ve had the opportunity to cover numerous events and festivals, and interview unbelievable talent, keeping me close to my other true passion: music.
I think it is a rare thing for people to truly love what they do, and I’m happy to be a part of such an amazing organization, and wonderful executive board. I can’t wait to make this year our best yet!
