VCU Gold Rush Dancer Grace is Already a Public Relations Master

Plenty of college students are savvy when it comes to social media these days, but that is really a far cry from someone with a public relations background that knows how to craft and maintain a positive public image. That kind of skill comes from something more than just having a couple thousand Twitter followers.

VCU Gold Rush dancer Grace is trying to become just the kind of person you turn to when you need to create a public persona. The Rams senior is on pace to graduate this May with a degree in Public Relations and a plan to move to the west coast and begin her entertainment PR career. As any good job seeker will tell you, the key to finding the right job is selling yourself. And when your goal is a career in public relations, you need to be able to prove you know how to use social media to your advantage.

So of course Grace was up for a feature here on Cheer Heaven. What better way to sell your college dance experience as a positive to future employers than to point to the highly respected cheer & dance blog that featured you just a couple of months ago. I'm not saying she's using me to get a job, but if she is . . . kudos to her!

Grace also plans to audition for a couple of NBA cheer squads once she gets settled, so hopefully this feature helps her in those endeavors as well. I know that I would love to be able to write a follow-up feature in a couple years talking about Grace's experience as a professional dancer. Now that would be a pretty sweet full circle kind of PR move!
