A PRSSA Love Story

By: Josie Bobeck

2017 was a good year for the Eleanor Wright Chapter of PRSSA at Eastern Michigan University. We worked hard, stressed out a little bit, and laughed a lot. We held professional development events, went on agency tours, and traveled to Boston for National Conference.

They get it. PRSSA is unlike any organization I have ever belonged to. We function like a well-oiled machine – always having each other’s backs no matter what. Not only are they my colleagues, but some of my best friends. I mean, you really bond with people when you live together in a tiny apartment for five days.

They’re my network. A lot of us graduate at the same time, and we don’t know where life will take us. May we end up at an agency, a nonprofit, or graduate school, we always have people we can call when we need a reference or a favor, and that makes me feel a lot better about not knowing what I’m doing come April.

They are so smart. We are all so different in our talents, and we work so well together. I can’t imagine being in this organization without any one of them. We know when we need to ask for help and everyone is willing to step in, and the support is a truly amazing feeling.

I have made so many memories with these people. From figuring out the bus system in Boston to stressing out at E-Board meetings, I wouldn’t want to be doing this with anyone else. I’m so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful organization with the people who have helped me shape the person I am today.
