Brittnie Curtis is a senior at Texas State University. This year, she takes on double responsibility within WCA as Secretary and Membership Chair for the Texas State Student Group. From managing and updating WCA’s campus blog and emailing lists to answering questions from prospective members, Brittnie has become a model for student success.
Originally from Katy, she manages her Public Relations major and Business Administration minor with an impressive array of leadership positions. She is the Social Media Coordinator for the Office of University Marketing and the Social Media Chair for the Bobcat Leadership Board, a group of students dedicated to leadership development. Brittnie is also a Sports Writer for the University Star, Texas State’s student newspaper and is a Sports Contributor for the KTSW Social Media Department, the student-run radio station on her campus.
She grew up watching sports and the family pastime activity has extended past her television set and into her future career. She is looking to land a job in the sports public relations field after graduation with her eyes set on New York City. “I have a love for sports and a love for PR, so that’s a perfect career for me,” she said. She also hopes to attend graduate school in the near future.
She decided on a career in PR after dabbling in theater and an array of other interests. When she learned that PR was a combination of those interests, including public speaking, she knew she found the right fit and realize, “That’s me! That’s what I’ve been searching for.”
In addition to her already impressive resume, Brittnie volunteers weekly around the San Marcos area through her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, a community service based organization.
Her wise words for dealing with college but applicable to any new endeavor include, “The future can freak me out but early planning really helps. You have to be your number one fan and wake up every morning, focus on the day and take things step by step.”
