Hola! Let’s fill you in on the story so far…
So I finished high school, my favourite subjects were English and Art. After watching a lot of Sex and the City, PR seemed the perfect career solution – creativity plus smarts.
Spent three years at university (counting down the days, academic life wasn’t for me) and graduated with my fancy Bachelor of Communications. Phew, now I can quit my day job as a customer service supervisor at the local supermarket.
Got hooked up with a two month ‘project officer’ (whatever that means) position at one of the globe’s largest mining companies up in the big smoke. Soon learn to wear flats on the commute and heels only in the office (an hour standing on the train in heels is not for the faint hearted).
Work my communication magic and get promoted to an actual comms position within the health and safety team. Spend over two years living and breathing the health and safety message.
Am truly lucky to get moved into a communications team (enough with the safety messages already!). For the next year I swear I learn more about communications than I did in the previous five years. Gathering knowledge turns into a true passion. Helping others learn to communicate with simplicity and pizazz fills me up but the corporate world is dragging me down.
