Kadie Beth served as a Communications Intern with the UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant.
"This internship really opened my eyes to the vast opportunities that exist fora public relations student. It taught me that I can have a career in PR where I pursue my passions for writing and social media while learning more about something seemingly unrelated but equally as important and exciting."
"Through this internship, I was able to dip my toe into a very specialized type of public relations and communications since I focused on marine science and research. I knew nothing about this area coming in, but it was so exciting and fun to figure out more as I went.
I gained invaluable experience with website maintenance and development, copy editing, story writing, and social media content creation. I was also able to expand my professional skills since I learned how to clip videos, adjust sound, and edit photos."
