Purple - Blue Gradient

"I had the privilege of joining their Marketing Team as a Public Relations Intern. This being my first PR role I learned vital skills to push me further into the dynamics of the PR world. Thank You I'RAISE Girls & Boys International Corporation for this wonderful experience and allowing me to join their amazing team! Everyone was so supportive and creative. It was such a welcoming environment where everyone was able to share their ideas and receive feedback. I liked how we had weekly meeting where we were able to give each other updates or pool together different ideas"
