Welcome... to my blog! :) 

Thank you for visiting; stay a while.

More than two decades ago at my kindergarten graduation I stood before an audience with a red fluffy dress and white bows in my hair and said "My name is Jasmine Tate; when I grow up I want to be a pediatrician." The room filled with laughter by adults probably wondering how a five-year old even knew what a pediatrician was. 

Several years later in my first biology class, I quickly realized that the field of medicine was not a place I belonged. I've always been a strong writer and decided in 9th grade that I wanted to be a journalist. A journalist is what I was going to be until I discovered the wonderful world of public relations during my senior year in high school. 

This is where it all began for me. As I studied the profession and gained a general understanding of what public relations is, it seemed like an industry that I was made for. 

It turns out, it was as good as it sounded. Throughout my academic career, I have made countless connections and learned much about the industry. By networking and seizing opportunities to develop my skills and knowledge of the profession, I now know what it takes to succeed. Through this blog I want to share some of my experiences and advice with you on my journey through the end of my academic career and into the profession. If you have any questions, feedback or topics you would like me to discuss, please comment below, connect with me on social media and share with your friends. 

Again, I am excited to begin this journey, and I want to take you with me. :) Let's Go!
