Caleb Carden

Tell us about yourself: I’m from Hueytown, Alabama; born and raised right here in the Birmingham area. I graduated from Auburn University with a B.A. in Public Relations in May 2017. I love traveling and exploring new things. I’m obsessed with all things Disney. I love coffee, pop music, and long walks down Main Street, U.S.A. My hobbies include binge-watching Netflix, Food Network or HGTV, and live-tweeting award shows.

Why KC Projects? I hope to learn specifically what it’s like to work in a firm/agency setting. While I do have previous PR experience, my only client was the company that I worked for. I’m excited to learn what it’s like to manage multiple clients and serve their needs accordingly.

If you could meet a celebrity, who would it be? I would want to meet Taylor Swift. I’ve been obsessed with her for years. I’ve always found her lyrics to be beautifully crafted while also remaining incredibly relatable. Throughout her career, she’s remained graceful and has always stayed connected to her fans.

Amanda Smith

Tell us about yourself: I graduated from the University of Alabama in May 2016 with a degree in Public Relations.  I have decided to make my home in the thriving city of Birmingham, Ala. with my fiancé who was born and raised here.  I am getting married in December so wedding planning has taken up a huge part of my life right now.   I love hiking, traveling, discovering local hangouts, and spending quality time with my friends and family.  I am ready to start defining my career and grow in my field. To do that, I am so blessed to have the opportunity to be an intern at KC Projects!  

Why KC Projects? I applied to KC Projects because I knew when I graduated college that I would fit best in a small firm atmosphere rather than a big corporate position.  I think my personality mirrors that of the fast-paced agency life. I like that some of the clients are local.  I am very interested in local business and culture, especially because Birmingham is such a unique and growing city. I am excited to learn everything I can through this internship.  I am most excited to learn the process of working with a client and the day to day tasks that it involves.

If you could meet a celebrity, who would it be? Ellen DeGeneres.  I am very inspired by her work ethic, addictive personality, and true kindness. I believe she is the most genuine celebrity and stands up for what she believes in.  I would be honored to meet her.

Tamara Green

Tell us about yourself: I am from a very small town known as Walnuthill, Florida. I am currently a senior at The University of Alabama pursuing a degree in Public Relations. I will graduate this upcoming December. In my free time I enjoy shopping, watching makeup tutorials on YouTube, binge watching reality shows, and spending time with family and close friends. I’m excited to be interning at KC Projects during my last semester of undergrad because it has given me an opportunity to experience what it’s like to work for an agency and manage multiple accounts.

Why KC Projects? Landing an internship at KC Projects during my last semester of college was a great accomplishment for me because I’ve pursued this company for years. I’ve followed KC projects on social media to stay updated on their client news and internship opportunities. I chose to apply here because I knew that I would have an opportunity to gain experience that would help me exceed in the PR world. The best part about this internship is that you’re actually gaining real world experience and working with clients. It’s exciting to come into the office and begin working on different assignments for those clients. Each day is different and you never know what project you’re going to be assigned next, that’s the fun part about PR. I’m looking forward to gaining more experience in all areas of PR especially Digital PR.

If you could meet a celebrity, who would it be? If I could meet one person in this lifetime, it would have to be Michelle Obama. She’s a very successful woman. She has accomplished so much during her lifetime, such as building a successful career and launching initiatives to help cultivate a healthier lifestyle. If I had the chance to meet to her, I would get advice on building my personal brand and finding ways to help others.
