Erin Barker is currently a sophomore at SDSU studying journalism with an emphasis in public relations.
She was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and on breaks you can find her snowboarding with her family, hiking with friends, playing tennis, and taking my three weiner dogs on walks.
One of her goals before graduating is to study abroad in France to learn more about careers in fashion, but also would love to study in the UK or Tokyo as well.
Other than being on the e-board for PRSSA this year, Barker works as a tutor for grade school children through Pathways at SDSU. During her freshman year, she was also involved with VS PINK by being on the campus team which she enjoyed!
Some of the reasons she joined PRSSA was to learn more about the PR world since it’s apart of her major and broaden her networking circle through a leadership role. So far from being in PRSSA, she has gained a basic knowledge of PR, professionals’ advice/tips, and leadership skills.
Although she has not yet had any experience with PR through an internship or other parts in the field, she is looking forward to hopefully obtaining an internship in the next year. She would love to pursue a career in beauty and fashion one day, but also have a strong passion for TV and radio. Her dream job would be to work for a radio station as a host or work for a beauty brand or fashion line.
