Emily Cousins

I’m doing a double degree in a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in public relations and journalism and loving every minute. It’s amazing how the communications industry is constantly changing and evolving – it keeps life exciting! I’d like to work for a major fashion magazine, or coordinate events like the VMAs or do publicity for celebs – as long as I’m living in different cities around the world and getting paid to write and create, I know I’ll be living the dream.
