My name is Julia Bauer and I am a senior at The University of Oklahoma, graduating this May. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and came to OU to gain new experiences and study public relations at Gaylord College. I have always known that I wanted to work in the public relations industry, and as I continue to learn more about the profession and gain experience through internships, it only further proves that I chose correctly. I love working with others and enjoy helping various brands and companies grow. Before BOLD, I have interned at four other companies: Hart Energy Publishing, Box Talent Agency, Odyssey and Brides of Oklahoma. I have learned so much from these companies, especially in the areas of public relations, marketing and editorial. Social media has always been a large part of each of my internships, as well as writing and editing for blog posts and publications. My goals for this semester include strengthening these skills, as well as learning more about branding, promotion techniques, idea pitching and understanding the best practices for creating a good client relationship. I am excited to be interning with BOLD, and I can’t wait to see how much I learn within these next few months!
