Hi, everyone, Annie Beard here! I am a Senior Strategic Communication major at Ohio University, and I am interning with Tell Your Story this summer. I met George while he was spending time at Ohio U. as the Visiting Professional of Public Relations at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. After a few weeks of follow-up emails and calls, I found myself in Chicago working alongside the amazing Tell Your Story team!
It has been great so far, and I have already learned so much from these PR Pros. I have gotten a lot of hands-on experience with social media, blog writing, competitive audits, press releases and writing content for newsletters—basically everything that a PR nerd, like myself, could hope for! I have also been working closely with George on CoWorkers, the co-working space he co-founded. (That’s a lot of co’s). It has been a lot of fun getting to know the members and spending time in the offices, and I am excited to see CoWorkers continue to grow.
The summer is already flying by, but it has been a great experience. I am excited to continue learning from and working with the Tell Your Story team and to make the most of the time I have left in Chicago!
