Kat Best

Hometown? I’m originally from Nashville, TN and moved to Birmingham a few years ago. Currently, I’m a Public Relations major at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

Fun Fact: In my free time I sing in a classic rock cover band and also pick up small acting roles here and there. I also love to travel and explore new places and have been to 25 of the 50 states and 3 countries.

Why KC Projects? When thinking about my career, I’ve had a few different ideas about in which direction I want to take my career and agency life is one of my top choices. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to learn the ins and outs of PR in an agency setting and work with a number of different clients. Variety is the spice of life!

 If you could meet a celebrity, who would it be? Barack Obama. 

Taylor Glow

Tell us about yourself: I am from a small town called Albany, Ga. I am a senior, Journalism and Mass Communications major at Samford University. My focus track is in Public Relations and I have a minor in General Business. 

Fun Fact: I am technically an only child, but my family has had a girl from Kenya live with us for almost six years now. She is through a non-profit organization that wanted to help her come to America for school. She is now one of my bests friends and is definitely a part of our family.

Why KC Projects? I have had experience working and doing “in-house” pr for an organization, but I wanted to have experience working for an agency as well. When searching online and on social media, KC Projects was the one that stood out to me as the best place to work and gain the best professional experience. 

If you could meet a celebrity, who would it be? JK Rowling. 

Michael Tyner

Tell us about yourself: I am originally from Birmingham but grew up in Montgomery, Alabama. I am a senior at the University of Alabama pursuing a degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Public Relation.

Fun fact: I want to visit a zoo in every state… I am currently at 2 / 50.

Why KC Projects? I have quickly learned that giving back to your community is the most beneficial and rewarding thing that and individual can do. KC Projects has a tremendous impact on the entire Birmingham area. Interning here gives me the tools to learn and help my community all at once.

If you could meet a celebrity, who would it be? Albert Einstein.
