Hello, my name is Emily Applegate. I am a 22 year-old aspiring college graduate from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and avid job hunter in the field of Advertising and Public Relations. I am currently a Brand Strategist at Jacht Agency, a university- partnered advertising agency entirely ran by students. There, I am responsible for being the go-to person for all things research and strategy. I assist the creative team in thinking strategically when developing creative pieces for our clients.
Weirdly enough, I do other things besides go to school and work. I like to be outdoors as much as possible. I enjoy reading, running, hanging out with friends, traveling and going to concerts and movies. Last year I had the opportunity to spend a semester studying in London. Once in Europe, I embraced opportunity to travel to ten different countries and meeting people from all over, many of whom I still keep in close contact with. Getting to know people and trying new things are what keep my life interesting, and it is something that I plan on carrying onto my adult life.
