Stella Nesca: Student Success Story

Originally, Stella thought she would go into advertising, but she says that when she discovered the Public Relations Marketing Management Diploma Program at PACE “it just clicked.” The condensed structure of the program meant only a short leave from paid employment and would make her career-ready in only one year. Plus, the program focused on all areas that interested her most.

Building great professional networks begins with industry-recognized instructors. “We also gain memberships in the International Association of Business Communicator and the Canadian Public Relations Society, which is wonderful for networking too.”

Stella plans to work with visual and dance artists in the body modification (tattooing) industry and will get her first taste of this through an internship as the PR person and micro blogger for the Northern Ink Xposure (NIX) Convention, the biggest tattoo convention in North America. “Some of the biggest names in the industry will be at this convention and I will be conducting all of the radio interviews. Ultimately, I want to get some great ink for these artists and create my own niche in PR,”.
