Kiana and "A Day in Her Shoes" With The Garner Circle PR

A Day in the Life w. Garner Circle PR

Written by Kiana



Over the past months I’ve been looking for a mentorship program to inspire me to perservere to meet all my goals and better my future. What are my goals?
My short term goals are:
  1. Have a talent agent by the time I graduate
  2. to appear as a an extra or more on television or film by the time I am 18
  3. work in the entertainment industry- Public Relations, manage, produce, songwrite
  4. become a household name and well respected actor & singer
  5. become one of the top 10 teen performers in Atlanta
It seems like now-a-days I live in a generation where everyone goes about their business & feels it’s necessary to go out and get “yours” because no one else will do it for you. I totally agree. Achieving by yourself gives success much more worth in the long run. But sometimes you need a strong base of people that will expect & encourage the best in you. I found a place that will give me that “push”. The She in Me Program™, founded by Miss Bessie A. Winn- Afeku was introduced to me by Miss Leslie Young A mentor and contact of mine, Miss Leslie & Miss Bessie introduced me to an opportunity to shadow Nicole Garner, CEO of The Garner Circle PR. The opportunity was extended to me and I was put to work! The art of networking is amazing I tell you!
