My name is Erin Norris and I am starting off my fourth semester at ETSU with a major in marketing and a minor in advertising/public relations. PUBR 2770 will be the first class I have taken in the mass communications department. I am excited to see what is in store this semester!
Since my freshmen year of high school I have been involved in politics, but always saw it as only being an interest and never something that I could pursue as a career since I'm a marketing major. It was not until I went to college and started attending conferences that I realized the opportunities outside of policy work that can be found in the political realm. Ideally, I would like to work for a political non-profit or campaigns as a marketing coordinator. The 2016 Presidential Election made me realize how important the task of spreading a message is in politics, and I would like to play a role in that for the future!
When I am not at school, working, or keeping up with politics, I like to use my free time to travel leisurely or hike!
