I am a member of the class of 2013 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. At Virginia Tech, I am studying public relations, marketing and entrepreneurship. In addition, I have gained much experience through internships and extracurricular activities. I am currently a PR and marketing intern for TenDollarsAndALaptop.com. Also, I write a guest blog twice monthly for MyPRConnection.com. I have made many great connections through these experiences. They have both shown me the true value of internships.
