Hi, I'm Becky.
I'm a recent graduate from the UNC School of Media and Journalism with specialization in public relations and a second major in political science. I grew up in Chapel Hill and have always been fascinated by the ever-evolving field of media and journalism. I am pursuing a career in strategic communication with a particular interest in graphic design.
One of my greatest accomplishments was leading UNC-Chapel Hill's 140-member community service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, in the fall of 2015. As the president, I oversaw the planning and execution of more than 100 service projects, 50 social events and three fundraisers that raised more than $6,000 for local charities. I was also recognized by 89 percent of active membership as having good or very good communication.
I am also very proud of the magazine for which I served as Art Director. See more here.

Graduated with Distinction

Hobbies & Travels
When I'm not expanding my portfolio or blogging about local restaurant vis comm., I enjoy watching Game of Thrones (or dressing up as Cersei) and stalking (but never commenting on) Reddit. I've also worked part-time at Mellow Mushroom for more than three years and love serving my fellow pizza lovers.
I studied abroad in the summer of 2015 and visited international organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Austria. Aside from researching
intervention in Bosnian media, I loved experiencing the culture and gorging on ćevapi.
