To obtain a career in the design or photography industry to utilizes my creative skills as well as my public relation skills.

Creative Thinking
I would say creative thinking is a good skill of mine because my mother is an artist. She received her Masters from Louisiana Tech in Art History 1999. I was raised around her while she gave privite art lessons. I was always learning from her.

Microsoft Access
I have been working with Microsoft Access for two years at The Kirksey Agency Inc.

Microsoft Excel
I took highschool classes on Microsoft Excel. I also took more classes in College. I worked with Excel alot at the Kirksey Agency Inc. All of these classes have made me very comfortable with Excel.

I took a 6 week coarse on how to work my cannon rebel manually. Following the coarse I began doing my own small photo shoots. I then began working with light room and photoshop. As well as renting lenses to test them out. I am very familiar with the photography world.

Public Relations
I have great public relations skills because I have been working with people since I was 14. I love to be around people and I love to help people. At my current job I have to go into different businesses and take them gifts from The Kirksey Agency Inc. to try to gain them as a prospect. I am very comfortable with people!
