Events, PR and Non-Profit are some of my favorite things so I was ecstatic when I had the opportunity to attend this year’s Nickelodeon Halo awards in November.
The Nickelodeon Halo Awards are about recognizing teenagers who help and lead others. It was quite rewarding seeing young people do such great things from providing eye care to those less fortunate to throwing “philanthro-parties”.
Attending this event also got my non-profit organization, the You Are Movement, some publicity. We interviewed Nickelodeon stars such as Victorious’ Leon Thomas and The Thundermans’ Jack Griffo and spoke to television personalities such as Nick Cannon and the band The Vamps. They spoke about how they stay positive in such a fast-paced environment and held up a “You Are...” Sign with a positive quality written.
The orange carpet was an unforgettable event featuring some of the most influential people in the non-profit and entertainment /music public relations industry. Networking and being immersed in a professional setting in something I want to pursue felt like a step closer towards my career.
