Intern Spotlight: Adam Bowers

Each summer, RLF holds an intern bootcamp to introduce our new interns to industry topics and tactics. Our team members share personal experiences and specific campaigns to engage our interns in the work we do. For example, Account Supervisor Aleasha Vuncannon recently shared one of RLF’s past campaigns publicizing the grand opening of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum in downtown Greensboro.
RLF welcomes four interns to the office this summer. And today the spotlight is on Adam!
Adam Bowers

I am a senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I am majoring in public relations and am working on a minor in geography. I come from Rocky Mount, NC (which, contrary to popular belief, is not in the mountains).
What is your dream job?
Tie between (a) doing PR for Coca Cola and (b) being a product tester at a toy company (but inexplicably getting paid a decent salary despite that my sole responsibility would be to play with toys all day).
 What do you do when you aren’t at RLF?
When not at RLF, I spend my time reading, playing disc golf and hanging out with my soft-coated wheaten terrier, Solomon.
 What is a fun fact about you?
I avoid eating at restaurants that serve Pepsi products.
 What is your favorite book?
The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis.
 If you could go out to lunch every day, where would it be?
Chipotle Mexican Grill. It’s the best way to get all the calories you need for an entire month in one convenient burrito.
What is your favorite part of being an intern at RLF so far?
Interning at RLF has shown me that I not only enjoy the theory of public relations, but the practice as well.  In school, we learn all about the theory, but there’s a world of difference between the theory and practice.  At RLF, I’ve really gotten to see what the practice is like.  During my first week, I got to write, pitch and distribute a press release (and I loved it).
