I choose PR Because
I love contributing to something bigger than myself.
I love the positive butterfly effect one small act (press release/phone call/social media post etc.) can have over many people over time.
I love building relationships; my own as well as helping others do the same. The name says it all: public (people) relations!
I love being a part of helping someone’s dreams come true.
I love that it brings out the best in me, personally and professionally.
I love that it serendipitously unites my passions, skills and experience.
I love that there is no one size fits all approach.
I love the freedom PR offers to think, move and create independently.
I love that it allows me to serve the world in personally meaningful way.
I love that I can pour both my heart, my hands and my neurons into something I’m so passionate about.
I love that even though it is a lot of work, it is also a.lot of fun!
I love that in PR my weary heart finally found a home.
More than anything, I love being a part of a powerful force that shapes and influences society and therefore….
I am phenomenally blessed and grateful that I get to use my God given talents, passions and skills not only as a positive influence here and now, but ultimately for the building of His kingdom.
Thankful that in PR, I get to do it all.
The PR Girl Manifesto recently posed the question, “I choose PR because”. I hadn’t given this question much thought until I read it, but the answer came so instantaneously and effortlessly there could be no other right answer (expanded version of my original response):
I didn’t choose PR, it chose me.
And now, I choose PR.
