The INTERNal Perspective of Public Relations Intern Karina Wrona

July 12, 2013

Public Relations intern Karina Wrona shares her experiences as an intern at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. Hear how she helped deliver smiles at the Boys and Girls Club:

Public Relations Intern Karina Wrona“My name is Karina Wrona and I will be a sophomore this fall at Marist College where I am majoring in Public Relations and minoring in Fashion Merchandising. This summer I am working with the Public Relations team where I have discovered how the world’s leading florist and gift shop delivers smiles to its millions of customers. These first few weeks at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM have already brought about so many opportunities and hands on experiences.  I was welcomed with open arms and immediately educated about the company. After learning what a caring department I would be working with I was stress-free and eager to begin.  With assignments ranging from press releases to community outreach my assignments allow me to explore and be creative.  With help from my team I took on the assignment of coordinating a Summer of a Million Smiles event. We paired up with a local Boys and Girls Club to help bring smiles to their community. As students celebrated the end of a successful school year the team hand-delivered smiles by passing out cookies from Cheryl’s new Carnival line. Afterwards, children worked on creating their own version of smiley faces using paper plates and art supplies which was a great way to tie our initiatives to their creativity. The End of the Year Carnival & BBQ was filled with games, food, outdoor fun and most importantly smiles!

This internship has been extremely rewarding as I first hand have witnessed the results of everyone’s work. I am looking forward to the coming weeks as I am certain I will continue to learn about the industry.”
