Spring Intern Spotlight: Kat Pallotta

RLF’s internship program strives to offer students a holistic agency experience that exposes them to both the challenging and rewarding aspects of the communications industry. Throughout the course of a semester or longer, interns enhance their skill sets and acquire new knowledge to prepare for a career in public relations, marketing or advertising. This spring, we are happy to have on board Kat Pallotta as a communications intern and Kelsey Payne as a graphic design intern.
Our first spring intern spotlight is on Kat Pallotta.

“I am a senior at Elon University majoring in strategic communications with a minor in professional sales. I am from Basking Ridge, New Jersey where I have lived the majority of my life. After graduating this May, I hope to pursue a career in PR, advertising, or marketing. In my free time, I enjoy playing golf and traveling!”
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpower to be?
I would love to be able to fly! This would allow me to easily travel the world and experience new places and cultures.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Ice cream! In high school, I spent my summers working at a local ice cream shop in my town. Safe to say, I never got sick of eating it, especially one of our flavors called Cookie D’Oreo, which has cookie dough and Oreos!
What is your favorite thing about living in North Carolina?
My favorite thing about living in North Carolina is the Southern hospitability. Coming from New Jersey, I was happily surprised to see how friendly and nice people are. Also, I love hearing Southern accents!
What is something new you have recently tried or experienced and why did you choose to try it?
During the fall semester of my junior year I studied abroad in Florence, Italy. I took Italian in high school and I love pasta, pizza, and gelato, so I thought it would be the perfect fit. It ended up being one of the best experiences of my life and I would highly recommend studying abroad in Florence to anyone!
What was the last book you read?
“Purple Cow,” by Seth Godin. The book explained that in order to stand out today, you need to create an edge by finding something unique, like a purple cow, and be remarkable. This is a great read for any communications professional!
