Jihye Jeong will be graduating this spring with an MA in Global Sustainability from the Patel College. Her undergraduate degree was in business administration which lead to her declaring the Entrepreneurship concentration. Jihye plans on working in management and marketing fields and is currently a marketing intern at Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful. Her roles include managing their official social media accounts and website. Jihye has also assisted in the planning for the Annual Breakfast Awards and Tropical Night events for Tampa Bay Beautiful's VIP guests. 

The research in rhetoric and environmental communication that Jihye conducted in her "Communicating the Value of Sustainability" course has been very useful in her internship at Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful. 

"I learned how to communicate about sustainability, and practice applying that knowledge to the production of written documents and digital artifacts," said Jihye. 

Jihye is finding the internship with Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful to be a great experience allowing her to apply the theoretical content learned from her PCGS courses. She has also been able to network and share ideas with environment experts.
