About Jenna Cornick
Hi! I’m Jenna Cornick, life enthusiast. I love portrait photography, new destinations, a twist on classic style, summer sun, quotes to make you think, and the oxford comma.
Currently, I am studying public relations, advertising, and Spanish at Drake University.
Naturally, your next question is, “well, what do you want to do with that snazzy diploma of yours post-graduation?”
I do not have one specific answer for you, as I can envision myself in a variety of places as I launch my career and build upon my education.
I would love to pursue a career in the non-profit sector, managing communications for an organization which aligns with my beliefs and is out there trying to do some good in the world.
I can also imagine working in an agency setting for either a public relations, marketing, or advertising agency. I love the agility of agencies, how they develop so much content, for a wide varieties of clients and audiences, in a short amount of time, maintaining such a high quality of work. The culture of advertising agencies is one I want to be a part of. Read about my experience working at Blink, a small marketing agency in the summer of 2017.
I would also love to get into PR consultant work, providing me with flexibility in my career.
Ultimately, if my career allows me to travel, I would be thrilled.
In moments of free time, I love photography, music, staying active, and exploring new places.
At the end of 2016, I started shooting with my first DSLR camera, a Canon Rebel T6. Immediately after, I went to study abroad in Málaga, Spain. The photo opportunities were endless, and the beautiful landscapes and new faces gave me a the perfect excuse to get started practicing photography. This was a heavily trial-and-error based project, but thanks to some lessons from a friend of mine from high school, I set off with the basics of the manual setting on my camera and took off from there!
Music is a passion of mine. When I was young, I played piano, was a percussionist in my school band, and sang in choir. Nowadays, I am not actively creating music, but I take pride in my curated playlists on Spotify, and love to attend concerts of some of my favorite artists. Most recently, I watched Sylvan Esso perform at the Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines and Saint Motel perform at the Iowa Memorial Union in Iowa City. You can also catch me on the campus radio station, 94.1 The Dog. Tune in at 9 p.m. on Sunday evenings.
Read on for a variety of musings and reflections on fashion, music, photography, perhaps some food & fitness, professional accomplishments, and life happenings.
Thanks for stopping by!
