My name is Jodie Howard. I am an aspiring Public Relations specialist with a special concentration in event planning, communication design, crisis communication and media relations. I grew up in Papua New Guinea, an island in the South Pacific. My father is from the United States and my mother is from Papua New Guinea (PNG). I am bilingual in English and Tok Pisin, the trade language in PNG.
I attend Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, Pa. I will graduate in May 2016 and plan to work in the field of public relations. I also have a minor in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).
I love travel, I have travelled all my life moving back and forth between Papua New Guinea and the United States. I love trying international cuisine and learning about new cultures and langauges.
