Since I was in high school I would always say, “I want to be a modeling agent”…that evolved into a talent agent. Suddenly, before I came out here, I changed my mind. I thought maybe it would be interesting to get into event production and event planning. This led me to my internship at Platform Media Group– a public relations company. PMG represents a variety of different brands from Ambiguous clothing to El Grado tequila (partnered with Patrick Dempsey!) to Hokto Mushrooms. I spend a lot of time contacting editors and various media outlets as well as sending out samples and helping with press kits.
I was very eager and excited to begin this internship and see if this would be the fit for me. It wasn’t even close. Although I have gained knowledge from my internship and saw the inner workings of a boutique PR agency, it is not for me. I am finding myself wanting to do what I initially wanted to do; become a talent agent.
