My name is Mateja Sears. Many times when people first meet me they have a hard time pronouncing my first name. Mateja is pronounced Ma-tay-a. I am from a small town in southern Illinois which has about 3,700 residents. I am currently a student at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. At SIUE my major is speech communications with an emphasis in Public Relations and my minor is mass communications. I am a family oriented individual and am truly blessed with the family that god has given me. A role that I have in my family is being the older sister to my 18-year-old sister. My family and I recently just received a new member of our family and the little guy is a yellow lab puppy named Ammo. Over the last five years I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend named Zac; you could say that we are high school sweethearts. During my spare time I enjoy being with my family and spending time with my friends. When I am not with family or friends I am either working on some type of craft, watching T.V. , or working. I work at a pool and have internship, just like many college kids I’m trying to work my way through college. I look forward to my future and seeing what god has in store for me.
I’ve decided to create a blog to tell others about my journey through life and to help others along the way. Not only is this blog for people to learn about me but for me to further my education. As a public relations student I know that in the pr industry it is highly important to blog. In order for me to keep bettering my self in the pr world I am going to blog about all things pr, marketing and advertising.
