Intern Seeks to Sharpen Skills at Dameron Communications
(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) Giving a voice to others has always been a passion of Orlandria Brazier and by joining Dameron Communications as an intern she anticipates affecting change in the local community. As a recent graduate from California State University of San Bernardino (CSUSB) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations, she is eager to put her degree to use.
“Many of my peers have said that when they graduate they plan on getting a ‘regular’ job, but I wanted more than that, and that’s why I came to Dameron Communications,” said Brazier. “I believe that working here will help polish my PR skills and at the same time allow me to bring my creativity to the table.”
While attending CSUSB Orlandria was an active student who took interest in many extra-curricular activities on and off campus.
Orlandria was a member of the Afrikan Student Alliance group on campus. Serving as the student liaison she attended the CSUSB Black Faculty and Staff meetings, bridging the communication gap between the African American students, faculty, and staff.
She was also a founding member of Commencing Poetic Revelations (CPR), a student powered group dedicated to the arts and higher education. Orlandria traveled with CPR to several local high schools and elementary schools throughout the Inland Empire sharing her passion for writing.
When speaking to students she often shared her story of being a first generation college student. During her time in CPR Orlandria has participated in talent shows, open MIC nights, and pageants, honing in on her passion for writing.
Taking her passion to another level she began writing for the arts and entertainment, and news section for the campus newspaper the Coyote Chronicle. During this time she wrote over a dozen stories, of which nine were published. Orlandria later became the assistant new editor and a freelance writer for the CSUSB magazine.
“I didn’t know what I wanted to do until I discovered Public Relations at CSUSB,” said Brazier. “ I plan to take what I have learned there and apply it here at Dameron Communications.”
Orlandria plans to return to CSUSB for her Masters and Doctorate degrees in Integrated Marketing Communications.
“Orlandria shows great enthusiasm for learning the ins and outs of PR here at Dameron Communications. We are pleased that she has join our team,” said Carl Dameron, founder of Dameron Communications.
