Miami, Florida, United States
My name is Laura Villar. I am currently a sophomore at Florida International University majoring in Communications.
I am motivated, task-oriented, and efficient young woman. My knowledge in communications and music business are comprehensive and current. I just finished a Fall internship for Mr. 305 INC, which is an independently owned music label by internationally known superstar, Pitbull. For this internship, I did a lot of promo, marketing, and helped out the publicists when I was given the chance. For example, one project I helped on was a music video premiere for one of our artists, Chino y Nacho. For the premiere I had to set up guest lists, press lists, contests with radio stations, and find the venue. During the event I had to rotate the press, handle the interviews, and check-in guests. The premiere went great and was one of the best experiences I had while on the job. I also was given the chance to work on social media marketing for other artists in the label. To add to that, I helped with booking artists interviews and radio show appearances.
Throughout the summer I did PR for the athletics department at Florida International University and gained much knowledge from that. I have also done some promoting and small projects for some undiscovered artists who are friends of mine that included running their instagram/twitter accounts. I am very creative and well with planning events. For example, in the past I have organized many small events for Carfour Homes, a charity that helps build homes for families. I also have worked with setting up and promoting appearances for a couple of friends of mine who are DJs. These appearances were small, but I did enjoy every second of it. Even though I did work for an athletics department, music is my passion.
