Personal Statement

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

My name is Kelly Palmer I am a Public Relations major and Apparel Design and Merchandising minor at Appalachian State. I truly believe that with organization, routine, the perfect red lipstick, and a great pair of shoes you can conquer anything. I have always been creative, but I never really knew how to express my ideas. Once I started college, it took me a year and a half, countless times changing my mind, and experimenting with a few different classes to realize that I loved writing and fashion and wanted to somehow put the two together for my potential career.

Fitness is a huge part of my life and I have always been an active person. I played soccer for 12 years but those days ended when I came to college. I had a lot of fun playing soccer and it kept me in great shape, but I’m glad I have more time to put toward what I am passionate about now. On that note, I love to travel and experience new cultures. I have visited Amsterdam, Paris, Brussels, London, Nicaragua, Mexico, and I’m headed to Australia in May, the day after I graduate! I can’t wait to add many more places to that list and experience the world while making meaningful connections through style, beauty, travel, and fitness.

This year I am the Vice President and the PR Chair of the Appalachian Apparel Association and I have also done some web design for the club along with some personal resume type sites for my colleagues. Last year I interned with the online publication CollegeFashionista as a style guru. I had a great experience writing articles, styling shoots, and utilizing social media to promote my articles. I also worked on the Public Relations and marketing for Panorama, a Ted Talk-based event at Appalachian State. Specifically, I worked on speaker bios and photography which you can locate in the writing portfolio under “professional portfolio”.

I enjoy event planning, fashion photography and content creating for my blog and social media. I have two cats, a pup, and I love to spend time with my friends. In my alone time, I enjoy walking and playing with my pup and reading magazines such as StyleWatch, InStyle and Vogue. I also love to decorate my room and find new and more convenient ways to organize and improve the environment in my home. I perform my best in challenging and result-oriented environments, I am a highly motivated and dedicated individual, and I strive to exceed expectations and deliver the effort necessary to achieve strategic goals. I would love to speak further on my experiences and goals. Please visit the contact tab on my website for how to do so. Thank you for visiting!
