About Me

My name is Ali Smith. I am pursuing a degree in communication at Western Carolina University, with a concentration in public relations and minor in English. My career goals are to work for a company that is engaged in their local community and become their PR director. I am interested in writing, photography, social media, and building relationships. I am a member of Western Carolina’s chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America. I was recently elected as PR director for WCU’s chapter. In this position I attend events, help with recruitment, plan events and fundraisers. I am also the chapter’s photographer, and I manger their social media accounts. I am a New Century Scholar, which is a scholarship that provides college preparation skills and college tuition support to high potential students. Three of my strongest skills include my creativity, strong attention to detail, and my driven work ethic.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson
