Although I’ve always known I wanted to work in public relations, when I look back on the days where I pondered my dream job and the somewhat extensive criteria that comprised my wish list, there’s one thing that stands out. Yes, to some it seemed silly, but to those who knew me (I mean really knew me), it was perfectly acceptable, appropriate in fact. Alongside my list of desired position (check!), great company (check!), and easily accessible LA location (check! minus the horrendous a.m. traffic), was a beautiful office with one particular adornment. And when I first walked through the door of Konnect PR Agency I couldn’t believe my prayers had been answered. The walls were pink! A bright bubble gum pink that every girl between the ages of 4 and 40 can’t help but fall in love with. And as the saying goes, it was at that very moment I knew I was home.
My name is Shonte, and I’m thrilled to introduce myself as the newest addition to Konnect PR. This week marks my first, and to describe it as AMAZING is truly an understatement. Not only I am doing what I’m passionate about with a public relations agency that’s among the leading in it’s field, but I’m also fortunate enough to work alongside a team of brilliant, creative and incredibly sweet women who are always smiling (so far) and ready to work hard because they love what they do. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to learn from and grow with, and I look forward to the exciting and rewarding experiences that lie ahead. And of course, I plan on sharing almost every moment with all of you. If you haven’t heard it in this blog, I’m sure somewhere you’ve come across the phrase that every day is different in the world of public relations. Therefore, there’s much to come. Stay tuned… 🙂
