Thanks for joining me! I’m in the second semester of my first year of grad school at NYU, studying communication and public relations. I was working on the global development policy and advocacy team for a foundation, working with grantees to invest in ideas that will help people lift themselves out of extreme poverty. I am hoping to use the skills I learn in this program and apply them towards similar work.
I’m also working as a publicist at a PR firm on the non-profit marketing team. Our firm is led by the guiding principle that we MUST be passionate our client’s projects – and we are. The people are amazing.
Within two months I need to decide on a capstone project topic. YIKES!! Everyday I discover inspiring people, topics, websites and products that spark my interest and encourage me to dig deeper. But, the same question always remains – is THIS the best of use of my time and will THIS be the topic I want to spend 1 year thinking about?
I will use this space to evaluate and consider my ideas.
Do you have any ideas?
