At dGC it’s important to give back and support the growth of future PR leaders. As the middle of summer approaches, we are reflecting on the past months and are amazed at the talent of young people and it helps us stay up-to-date at the same time.  This Summer, we were happy to host three interns, one of which is featured below. 

Meet Skylar Jefferson, a rising senior at Tennessee State University majoring in business administration with a concentration in marketing. We are thankful that Skylar is a part of the dGC Team and appreciate her hard-work.

What is your ideal position upon graduation?

Outside of PR, my ideal position would be to include my experience in being a musician and open a music school modeled by W.O. Smith Music School. I also would like to be able to help create my own brand and market my future business. I think that it would be a great opportunity to reach out to children/students who have a passion in music such as I did and still do.

Favorite part of being in PR?

My favorite part of PR would be the interest in taking each client’s mission into detail to figure out who and what they are exactly. It’s a very technical job but intrigues me to see how deep one can dig into a particular person or brand.

What have I applied from class to internship?

What I’ve learned from classes that I’m applying to my internship is how to prioritize, to efficiently organize, to complete tasks on time or before, and to always do my best.

What have you become excited about learning or developing during your internship?

I have become very excited about being able to use the skills learned at my internship in the real world and more importantly to be successful at building my own brand and company.

Favorite color?

My favorite color is red, but to be more specific my favorite color combo gives me motivation and inspiration. Red – to be sexy; Black – to be bold and confident; Silver – to be independent.

Favorite Quote? 

James Shaw Jr. – “I’m not going to rush anything. I’m not going to stress out or worry about how things will work out for me. Instead of overthinking, I will align my faith with divine timing and trust that everything that belongs in my life is making it’s way towards me right now.”

What’s the wildest thing you’ve ever done/outside of PR?

The wildest thing I’ve ever done was go abroad to Cartagena, Columbia. I was chosen one of three students to have the opportunity.
