More about Larissa
Hey! My name is Larissa, I am 21 years old and currently in my 2nd-year of the Public Relations (PR) program here at Durham. You’ll most likely find me around campus with a large coffee in one hand and my phone in the other, I love to stay connected (and caffeinated). That being said, don’t be afraid to come up and talk to me…you know… in person. As much as I love my phone, my laptop, and my social media, real life is pretty cool too.
After I finished high school I had a hard time deciding what to do next. I knew what my interests were but I didn’t know how I was going to turn them into a career (apparently there aren’t a lot of job opportunities out there for burrito connoisseur’s?). I watched as my friends from high school went off to different colleges and made new friends. I started to think that I wasn’t going to find the sense of direction I was looking for. I decided to take some time off to work, save up some money and figure out exactly what I was going to do for… well… the rest of my life. Working for a year in a minimum wage retail job really encouraged me to further my education and pursue a career I was passionate about.
Now that I’m at Durham, life is good! I love my program, I’m living on my own for the first time with my best friend, and I get to share my College experience for a whole year with all of you! J I learned so much during my first year at DC, not only about PR but about myself in general. I’m so excited to see what this year has in store for me and tell you guys all about it as I go!
