EXCITING NEWS FRIENDS!
I’ve been meaning to write a little something…sharing my news…but I have kind of been on the run the last week (by the way- sooooo fun…I can’t wait to talk more about my latest adventure, but first things first). Last week I was given the opportunity to start a summer internship with a great group of people at Campbell Ward in Little Rock, AR. They are a public relations and public affairs firm located in Little Rock right around the corner from the capitol building. They (I guess we now lol) do a lot of work with different agriculture groups and companies as well as some work in the political world. Here’s a little blurb about them:
“Campbell Ward is a bi-partisan, state and federal public affairs and public relations firm operating on a case by case approach that achieves optimal results for each specific client. Our firm provides widespread solutions to effectively address client concerns while identifying new ways to succeed and help create a comprehensive strategy.”
They provide services ranging from media relations to political action committee management as well as special events coordination/marketing to stakeholder mapping / public engagement. This is honestly super exciting to me! As you can imagine, I am soaking it all in. I started this past Tuesday and I am already learning so much, especially about agriculture in the state of Arkansas. Did you know that Arkansas is the number one rice producing state in the nation? That means this state produces more rice than any other state in the country. I have grown up around rice my whole life but never realized how important that statement really is. Super cool!
Take a look below at the fun socks they gave me on the first day. How cool are those??
I have been kind of laughing at myself because never did I think after graduation I would be working in Little Rock, Arkansas, talking about agriculture and/or politics in the office place. It is just a small reminder that God works in oddly, yet perfectly powerful ways. I am thrilled to be here this summer with these people that are so kind, fun, intelligent, and generous with their time and knowledge. It is also greatly comforting to feel like I am not wasting time, to have some small resemblance of a schedule, and to have a little bit of a purpose. I am also looking forward to where God is leading me. All I really have to do, and you too for that matter, is follow.
PS- Keep me in mind for further job opportunities as I will be looking for something more permeant as the summer ends AND if you are ever in Little Rock and want to grab lunch… HIT ME UP!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A student at Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
