My name is Leanna Truong! I am a senior at Rutgers University- Newark! I am a double major for Journalism and Video Production (newly added). I transferred from San Diego, California.. I know what you are thinking. Why would she leave beautiful San Diego, CA for NEW JERSEY! Just so you all know that I grew up in Jersey majority of my life. I left Jersey when I was a sophomore in High School and moved back my sophomore year of college to RU-N. I love it here. The fast-paced atmosphere here in the east coast drives to me push harder and work hard for what I want. Don't get me wrong, Cali was awesome, but not for college. I decided to become a Arts and Sciences major because if you get to know me, it really fits my personality. I am very outgoing, laid-back, goofy, dedicated and driven. I may come off as shy at first, but it really depends who I am talking to.
My main focus that I plan to do with my career is to do PR and Event Planning in the entertainment business. I love the feeling of planning and executing all the hard work put into my events and programs. My goal in life is to become a CEO Communications Director for a high end well known company that can give me an experience that other would kill for… now that I think of it I wouldn't mind putting my work into a up and coming company that I believe that will grow and do great things. Such as my internship I had over the summer for EGAMI (image backwards) Consulting Group, Inc. sponsored by Russell Simmons and Proctor and Gamble. These companies were in charge in urban events throughout the United States. My main experience for EGAMI was in the city where P&G hosted a walk through New York City in Harlem, Manhattan, and Brooklyn for various companies that they own. We handed out free samples of their products to show appreciation to the community that help them reach where they are now. They not only gave away free sample of Swiffer, Pantene, Old Spice, Duracell Batteries, Cover Girl Make-up, etc. but they gave free manicures, hair do's, shape ups for men, and doggie treats from IAMS. I got to meet many celebrities and even hang out with them. Which is very hard for students like us that are so young to do. Overall it was a great experience and I hope to gain more experience like this in the future.
I hope to continue to work my way up the ladder and reach my goal! Feel free to come up to me to talk and hang out! I love to eat and go out in the city!
