Jaclyn Simmons, an ambitious public relations student at Georgia Southern University, flattered me by choosing me as the subject of a long interview for a class assignment. I warned her that I’m not a public relations practitioner (though I really want to be), but because I’m an “international” PR person, specifically in East Asia, she wanted to interview me anyway.

Read the interview on Jaclyn’s blog here.

Jaclyn is majoring in public relations and minoring in Japanese, which it sounds like she is already fluent in. She will be studying abroad in Japan in the fall. She found me through the social network PROpenMic, a site that began shortly before my graduation. I’ve been less than active on it since graduation but I’m glad I kept my profile so that Jaclyn could find me. I know Jaclyn’s professor for this assignment Barbara Nixon through PROpenMic and Twitter.
