Hello! My name is Kate Bewak and I am a senior here at Ferris State in the PR program. I love cats, pickles, coconut, and anything cheetah print. I have a cat named Tobey, who I love. I am interning at Ericsson this summer, a global telecommunications company, and I am working out of the Mountain View, California location. I transferred to Ferris State last year after attending Oakland Community College for two years.
I joined PRSSA as a junior, which was kind of intimidating because I thought everyone had been in PRSSA since they were a freshman (which isn’t true). When I had finally decided that PR was the right program for me, I knew that I should join PRSSA. I remember my first day going in, there were so many people there and everyone was talking and all I could think was how I am going to fit in here. After attending the first couple meetings though I realized quickly how friendly everyone really was and how it was so easy to talk to them if I had questions, comments, or concerns.
Throughout the year I made sure I was a part of every event possible and went to every single event PRSSA was a part of or that would help me or the organization grow. And I think this was one of my favorite things, I am so glad that I made time to attend all these events because it helped me get to know fellow PRSSA members as well as learn and grow within myself. Since I am only away for college for two years I wanted to take advantage of as many things as I could. And that is my one advice to everyone in PRSSA, take advantage of your time here at Ferris. Go to events, make friends, live and learn through PRSSA.
I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoy being a member or Ferris State PRSSA. I can’t wait to see all the things we are going to do with PRSSA this year, and I can’t wait to meet new members, and bond with current members this year.
