Hi everyone! My name is Jillian Shur and I am so excited to be starting my Social Media Marketing internship here at Bad Rhino.

I was born and raised in West Chester, Pennsylvania and very pleased to be spending my summer interning at Bad Rhino in the town I know and love. Currently, I am a rising senior at The Pennsylvania State University majoring in broadcast journalism with a minor in sociology. I have always known I wanted to focus on a subject in college that allowed me to have a lot of creative freedom, and broadcast journalism has allowed me to do just that. Social media is another outlet I find that allows a lot of creativity. I am excited to learn more about the social media realm, since it is an aspect of everyday life that allows people to connect, create and inform.

This previous semester, I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Barcelona, Spain. My time in Europe truly opened up my eyes to the world around me outside of Pennsylvania. As cliche as it sounds, I see the world through new eyes after experiencing life in other cultures.

At Penn State, I love to be involved as much as I can throughout campus. I am an active member of Greek life, which has taught me leadership skills and how to work as a team. The aspect I love the most about this is how many opportunities I am provided with to volunteer and be an active member of society. I am also a member of “PSNtv” which is Penn State’s only entirely student run television-network. My favorite thing about Penn State is football season, hands down. There is nothing more ideal to me than a fall Saturday spent at Beaver Stadium.

Outside of school, I am a self proclaimed reality TV junky. I’m a also big fan of Philadelphia sports, especially the Eagles and the 76er’s. I love to spend time with my friends and family. In my free time you can catch me with a book sitting by my pool with my dog.
