Hi everyone! I’m Maggie and I am a very proud Houstonian (home of Beyoncé, in case you didn’t know). I am a senior Public Relations major with a minor in Nonprofit Organizational Studies. I hope to one day break through some of the marketing barriers that are currently in the nonprofit sector and help change the world!
I believe in loving people as an action and investing in relationships. I get to put these two things into practice every summer where I serve as a camp counselor at Camp Cho-Yeh. Camp is truly my passion and I think it is an incredible venue to reach kids and youth and impact them for the better.
Here in Norman, I am very involved with Lifestream at Journey Church, a college worship experience. This is where I found my niche in college and the people I have met through this ministry have changed my life. Starting this semester, I have the opportunity to serve as the Marketing/PR intern for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. I am very excited to start this new adventure and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for me.
As far as design, I have always been creatively minded and love thinking of new ways to reach people. This past semester I designed a sticker to help raise funds for a mission trip I went on over the summer. I created a “head’s up” campaign where I got a bunch of my friends to post pictures on social media of them with the sticker on their forehead to help me raise awareness about the stickers, raise awareness about my trip and ultimately raise funds. This campaign was extremely successful and I had my entire trip paid for in about two weeks.
I am looking forward to a fun semester in this class and to learning new things !!
