Aspiring PR Practitioner.Download Resume
Such a seemingly simple question, is always difficult to answer concisely. And, I like to be concise. I am a helper. I'm always lending a hand to make sure that events, projects or even someone's day goes as smoothly as possible. Moreover, I like to help people by providing the most accurate and useful information possible. Majoring in public relations allowed me to connect my need to help and give accurate information.
But, I am so much more than an aspiring PR practitioner. I am an ENFJ and a Leo. If you're into ennegrams, I am Type Two "The Helper." I love puppies and will ask strangers, "Can I take a picture with your dog?" I am a member of the BeyHive and have Google alerts set up for "Beyoncé." Southern Gothic literature fascinates me, and I am working on my own stories within the genre. And, I believe in Alabama and how great it can be.
Below you will see six words that I believe sum up "Kayla."
A friend recently described me as "infallible in regards to your willingness to love no matter what." And that spoke to me in terms of being resilient. When it comes to the things that I care about, I will work and fight for them in any way possible.
When I asked my roommate to describe me in one word, she said "vibrant." I love to bring a positive energy wherever I go. I've been told that my smile can light up a room. I believe in bringing optimism to any and all projects. Do not confuse optimism with naivety. I believe that there is a way out of all problems, and that failure is only opportunity in disguise.
My mother always taught me that, "there's a place for everything and everything has its place." While that adage doesn't always hold true for my closet-- it shines through in my work. I believe in orderly and high quality work. Like the logo at the top left of this page, I will never put my name on something I do not believe in. I put thought into every thing I do whether it is my work, clothing or Instagram feed. Everything reflects my personal brand. And, I hope my personal brand matches your organization's vision.
"Say what you mean, and mean what you say; then, you'll never have to take anything back." My father said this to me countless times. It is ingrained in how I treat people in professional and personal situations. It has shaped my ethics. Integrity is the most important character value in my book, and it informs so many of my decisions.
I believe in finding new ways to do old things. Reinventing the wheel can be a waste of time. But, optimizing the wheel is always a good idea. Call me a millennial, but I don't believe in working harder when you can work smarter. If there is a more efficient way, or an app for it-- I'll find it.
Beyoncé said, "I know you don't care too much, but I still care." I care deeply and unwaveringly about improving the human condition. Whether it's through spending an extra hour at work, or advocating for a cause, I give my all to whatever I am doing. I do not believe in apathy. We all must give fully to our fellow man to improve our overall state.
