In the recent 2014 State of the Internship Report, almost 37 percent of college students voted public relations and marketing agencies their preferred place to hold an internship, making our industry the most popular among students.
At RLF, we take pride in making our internship program a robust learning experience for students interested in a career in communications. Because of the smaller size of our agency, interns get hands-on experience by joining meetings and brainstorming sessions, pitching local and national media outlets, and drafting social media posts.
Our final summer intern spotlight is on Jhanay.
I’m Jhanay Davis, an Atlanta native and recent graduate of Bennett College with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and media studies. I’ll be attending graduate school in the fall at American University in Washington, D.C., to study strategic communication.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
The world is full of exciting places and I would be thrilled if I ever had the chance to visit Fiji. It’s such a beautiful country in the South Pacific. I’ve always wanted to travel there and immerse myself in the nature, culture and, of course, the food.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I must admit that I have broken the record for winning the most Grammy awards for Best R&B Shower Performance.
What activities or organizations are you involved in?
I’m a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
If you had a theme song, what would it be?
I absolutely love music and it’s very difficult to pick one song that I could call my theme song, but I would have to say the one song that best represents me right now is called “I Can” by Nas. Unconventional, I know. But it just reminds me to stay focused on the things that I want to accomplish in life and to remain humble, as well as grateful.
If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
There are so many people in the world to choose from but I would have dinner with Aretha Franklin. I have always loved her music since I was kid and I would love to talk to her about her experiences.
