From a young age, Paris Clark has always loved to read and write. She remembers going to the book fair in grade school and being excited to buy books as they would always grab her attention more than toys ever did. Writing allowed her to put her wild imagination to use early on. Paris, originally from Charlotte, is a senior at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.
She will be graduating in May 2021 with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication with a concentration in public relations. Paris was not sure what she wanted to major in when she first arrived on campus but soon realized that she could integrate her passion for reading and writing into her career. Wanting to stay behind the camera and work more behind the scenes and on writing she decided on a public relations concentration.
Paris is on the executive board of Queen City Aggies where she is in charge of social media and marketing. She is also a member of PRSSA, the Public Relations student society of America and 100 Collegiate Women which promotes sisterhood and women’s empowerment. She intends to pursue a career in marketing and communications.
Her first article was published a year ago in The Carolina Peacemaker. The title read ‘The best band in the land brings energy to the BB&T stadium stands’ and focused on North Carolina A&T’s Blue and Gold Marching Machine homecoming performances. This was a proud moment for Paris and reassured her that she was doing what was meant for her. Besides reading and writing, another one of her hobbies include listening to music.
This is her third internship in the field. Paris is very goal-oriented and pays close attention to detail. She has enjoyed the environment and team aspect at Bogues Consulting Group. What drew Paris to the internship was that it is a black-women owned firm. It has also allowed her the exposure to different industries which has allowed her to build knowledge and skills in the field. Suffice to say, Paris will be very successful in her future endeavors.
