My name is Kayla Ellis, I’m a Senior studying PR at BYU. I’m currently the Marketing Assistant for BYU Career Services where I work with the Events Coordinator to initiate and carry out projects and campaigns for the office. Working here has given me a real passion for professional development and business casual attire. I hope to intern in Seattle next summer before starting my full-time employment. I seek to influence people, help people, and create things in all of my personal and professional endeavors. Eventually I can see myself owning a non-profit or business along those lines. I could also see myself as “The New Oprah.” Outside of my scholastic and professional life I like to rock climb (but only inside) and to read (mostly self-help, Harry Potter, and C.S. Lewis). However, my main hobby is eating and I have a food blog to prove it.
