Tell us about your favourite Fanshawe experience.
Completing my internship at King’s University College was one of my favourite Fanshawe experiences. During my internship, I’ve learned a lot about communication and myself as a future public relations practitioner. From event planning to crisis communications, King’s provided various opportunities for me to develop my skills and acquire new experiences. My first project included executing a communications plan for the Bell Let’s Talk Day event at King’s, which has won the Award of Merit issued by the IABC of London. I felt adequately prepared to be at my placement based on the course work in the first term.
