It’s a great day to be an intern! More importantly, it’s an even better day to cultivate your best self; an opportunity to truly shine!
I’m Amelia Wright and I’m a summer 2016 intern for Great Shape! Inc. and Let It Shine Media. As a senior Public Relations major and Promotions minor at Gonzaga University, I’m thrilled to exercise my academic studies for the common good. Working for two organizations that add incredible amounts of sparkle to the U.S. and Jamaica allow me to fulfill a purpose larger than myself.
Creating meaningful connections with those around me ignites my passion to pursue a career in Public Relations. With this in mind, I would love to share a little bit of my story with you!
Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, I come from a tight-knit family that raised me to be an individual who consistently values compassion, hard work, and authenticity. I attribute my fervent desire to live each day with a full and grateful heart to my generous mother, driven father, and courageous sister.
Leaving my family to attend Gonzaga University was a large feat yet the greatest decision I’ve ever made! The immense growth and new-found inspiration I’ve obtained over the last three years is entirely due to the astounding university that quickly became my home. As new friends became family, Gonzaga undoubtedly has been the best place to experience four magical years of rigorous study, personal development, and fulfilling relationships.
In addition to crafting a love affair with Public Relations and the art of storytelling, dance is where I find the utmost solace, happiness, and pure joy. As a member and 2016-2017 Team Captain of the Gonzaga Bomb Squad hip-hop dance team, I have been so fortunate to continue my love for performance and find a family of dancers that inspire my life to the utmost degree. When I’m not working as an intern, you’ll most likely find me dancing with my squad on the Kennel floor!
What I find most exciting about life at the moment is joining the Great Shape! Inc. and Let It Shine family! I look forward to learning many valuable lessons, knowledge, and experiences that will aid in my future Public Relations studies and career. Furthermore, I am sincerely thrilled to learn from Lucinda and the many ways in which she helps others meet and achieve their best.
Here’s to the start of a wonderful summer and the many adventures to come!
Remember- the world is always in need of your illuminated spirit.
