Ladies and gentlemen…I made it through Public Relations Publishing!

If you read my blog posts, I know this might come as a surprise to you. My blog posts usually consisted of me complaining about how hard it was to navigate everything from Indesign to Adobe Premiere Pro. If you know me, you know that I am the biggest perfectionist on the planet. I absolutely hate when I am not good at something and I get extremely frustrated when I cannot figure something out. That is why I was not sure if I would be happy with myself at the end of the semester.

My perfectionist self-struggled through this semester because I was not good at first (I am still not that great). Although, I really did learn a lot about myself this semester. I realized that it is okay to not be a professional at something on my first try or even ever if we are being honest. I had to step back and realize that it is not about how great I complete a specific project, but it is how much I learn and grow as a person and a public relations professional.

I do not want to give up when something is hard, and I am proud of myself for constantly working to be better this semester. I am not the most technically savvy person in the world, but I do have a lot of heart and passion. That is something I care about more than anything.

I am so thankful for Croom for his endless amount of patience with me and my millions of questions this semester. I learned so much more than I could ever imagine. I want to push myself to continue to learn more about public relations publishing and strengthen my skills that I have learned throughout this course.

Here is a short video of everything I have created this semester:
