Hello world! This PR firm needed some summer interns so, here we are! We all reign from the Midwest, so being out in Los Angeles this summer has been and will continue to be a fantastic adventure. Let us introduce ourselves.
Hey everybody! My name’s Kate and on Day 2 at Konnect PR I am already LOVING it! Here’s a little bit about me!
Where are you from? Chicagoland area. Go Blackhawks!
Where do you go to school? University of Wisconsin-Madison What do you study? Communication Arts and Spanish What are your future plans? I just got back from studying abroad in Spain so going back is a must! Other than that, I’m looking to narrow my wide range of likes into a fabulous career for myself.

What’s your favorite quote? “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.” -Mulan
If you could pick one piece of clothing to describe your personality best, what would it be? A blazer. I love them. They’re classy, timeless, structured, and sassy.
If you had a super power, what would it be? Ability to time travel. I’d love to check out the 20’s and the 60’s. Not to mention I’d anonymously warn people about unfortunate events and possibly bet on sports games.
If you had to have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Your classic Italian meal. Pasta, garlic bread, gotta love it.
Hey, my name is Natalie! I am an intern at the Konnect PR firm for the summer and can’t believe how great it is here. Get to know me a little better with the questions below and by reading my sometimes witty/clever tweets @NatG92 or follow me on instagram @ngarretson.

What do you study? Major: Journalism: Strategic Communication Minor: Business
What are your future plans? I want to travel a lot, and I have no idea besides that.
What do you like to do in your spare time? I recently fell in love with SoulCycle and spin classes. I cannot get enough! It always kicks my butt.
Who is your celebrity crush? My celebrity crushes are Ryan Gosling for the blondes, and Zac Efron for the brunettes. (How could you possibly choose?!)
What’s your favorite quote? I love any Dr. Seuss quote, but I love The Lorax and this one always stood out for me. “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” –The Lorax
If you could pick one piece of clothing to describe your personality best, what would it be? I would be a v-neck t-shirt. It’s a classic piece and it can go from comfortable simple to dress up for a night out. When I don’t know what to wear it is my go to piece it never lets me down.
If you had a super power, what would it be? I think I would choose to go invisible as long as my clothes could turn invisible too.
If you had to have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? I would choose steak, a form of potato, and strawberries with a Diet Pepsi.
Hey, my name is McKinsey! Follow me on instagram @_kins
Where are you from? I come from the great land of Kansas City, Missouri. I enjoy my Midwest life but I’m really enjoying Los Angeles. I might even move out here after I graduate in 2014.
Where do you go to school? I attend school at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. Go Mules!
What do you study? I major in public relations and minor in photography.
What are your future plans? My dream job is to host a travel show. REALISTICALLY, I’d like to be involved with international or travel public relations. Oh, and LOVE LIFE.
What do you like to do in your spare time? If you didn’t pick it up from the previous answer, I like to travel. I studied abroad in Auckland, New Zealand and will be studying abroad for a SECOND time this fall in Bangkok, Thailand. I’m really excited. I like to get creative too. I enjoy photography and writing!
Who is your celebrity crush? James Franco, James Franco, James Franco… did I mention James Franco?
What’s your favorite quote? “One Love” or something hippie like that. I’m all about equal rights, freedom, and free love!
If you could pick one piece of clothing to describe your personality best, what would it be? This is a difficult question to answer. But… I think I would be a cardigan. And I’ll tell ya why. It has a sort of casual elegance about it. It’s professional enough for work, yet casual enough to go out. It says intelligence, casual, and comfortable. I think that’s kind of like me!
If you had a super power, what would it be? The ability to morph into anything I want. Wanna be a panda for a day? Heck yeah! Wanna turn into a tree and just hang out for a couple days! Yup! Wanna turn into a bird and fly away? Yeah… that would be my super power.
If you had to have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? It would be salad. I’m a vegetarian…for a reason. I love veggies! I know… the other interns think I’m a freak. I go nuts over the Farmer’s Market they have in downtown Los Angeles every Thursday!
We love interning for Konnect PR agency. We even got greeted this morning with fresh cupcakes from Sprinkles.
This is the Red Velvet cupcake from Sprinkles in Los Angeles. I feel like a goddess today. It is GOOD to be a foodie out here.
Of course, we had to try Fatburger, our client, today for lunch. We didn’t want to…but we sort of felt like it was our obligation as interns. 😉
What a wonderful day to visit this downtown Fat Burger location.
They even offer a vegetarian option which is pretty delicious.
Thanks for reading the post, guys. Kate, Natalie, and I are really happy to be here at Konnect PR. We look forward to learning a lot this summer from these extremely talented PR publicists!
