Hi! I'm Lauren. As I finish my fourth year in the Bachelor of Public Relations program, I reflect upon the countless opportunities I've had to showcase my love for writing and oral communication. I currently work at Media Profile and have accepted a position as an Account Coordinator, where I will work for such clients as Google and the City of Las Vegas. I've recently completed a thesis on sexual health communication for students, which has encouraged an interest in healthcare PR. I look forward to embarking on new adventures in this journey of life!

Brandon Pacheco

I am currently a fourth year Bachelor of Public Relations student at Humber College and have been working part-time at Home Depot for the past three years. The Home Depot has provided me the opportunity to develop and hone my interpersonal skills, work effectively within teams, as well as independently. One of my biggest learnings to date has been the importance of branding and public relations – especially, during these challenging pandemic times. Humber's program has also equipped me with many skills that may be readily applied to this opportunity, such as impactful writing, social and digital media knowledge, along with the ability to conduct effective interviews.

Gus Lopes

I am an award-winning public relations student and a zealous communications professional. A relentlessly curious individual, I'm passionate about work that inhabits culture and how institutions create connection and trust through strategic communication. During the pandemic, I helped co-charter a non-profit that connects volunteers across Canada and started freelance consulting with local businesses to support their digital communications as they navigated the changing landscape. Over the past year, I have worked for one of Canada's most awarded public relations agencies, executing media relations and social media strategies for some of the biggest Canadian and global brands. Outside of work and volunteering, Gus enjoys cooking, cycling, photography, and occasionally playing the piano, but only as a party trick.
