*Tap* *tap*… Is this thing on? Hi, I’m Kira Wilson and I’m happy to announce that I’ve been hired as Hill Impact’s newest intern! I’d like to thank my agent, the Academy, and my parents for this amazing opportunity. But on a more serious note…
I’m a senior at George Mason University, graduating this May with a degree in communication with a concentration in public relations and a minor in business. Choosing to study PR was an easy decision once I realized how it fit perfectly with my love for writing and creative thinking. At Hill Impact I’ll be performing tasks like media monitoring, pitching to local and national media, and drafting content like press releases, blogs, and social media posts. I’m very excited for this opportunity where I can refine and strengthen the skills I already possess while learning from the experienced and talented Hill Impact team!
When I’m not going to class, I enjoy traveling whenever I can, even if it’s just a weekend trip to Richmond. While I only have one stamp in my passport, my next bucket list destination is Iceland, where I want to see the Northern Lights. Trying new recipes is another one of my favorite and necessary pastimes. I have to thank my roommates for dealing with both my good and not-so-good ventures in the kitchen-- don’t worry, I won’t make that healthy butter chicken recipe ever again! Music is another one of my passions, whether it’s car singing or going to concerts. My taste is just about as eclectic as it comes, but I do have a healthy appreciation for Beyoncé, much to my new boss Dan Hill’s chagrin.
This is only my first week at Hill Impact, but I’m excited to jump into the busy world of PR… and hopefully make an impact!
