Coastal Bend College

The latest official news from CBC!

Coastal Bend College is proud to announce the four students who were selected to be part of the CBC Street Team! The team is structured as a social media/marketing internship where the students will learn about creating quality, engaging content and the ins-and-outs of using various social media platforms. We’re excited to introduce you to Brianna today…take it away, Brianna!

Brianna01Hello! My name is Brianna, and I am super excited to be a part of the Coastal Bend College (CBC) 2014-2015 Street Team! I was a little surprised that I got picked because I am a freshman while the others are sophomores, and I applied saying I wasn’t going to get it but here I am…and I’m so happy that I was chosen!

I guess now would be a great time for me to tell y’all folks a little bit about myself. I moved to Beeville my junior year of high school and attended A.C. Jones High School and graduated from there. I made a lot of friends and had a great experience, but as high school was ending I was  confused on what to do next. I decided to attend CBC while I figure out the next chapter of my life. I plan on majoring in Speech Therapy and would like to transfer to either the University of Texas at Austin or University of Houston.

What I like about CBC is that the main campus is located where I live. I still get to see my family every day and have my mom’s home cooked meals. Also there is assistance for whenever I need help with something. There are tutors to help when I am having problems with school work. The student development advisors are always nice and willing to help you anytime and day of the school week. Every problem that I ever encountered was always fixed within a day or two here at CBC, and that’s really important for a full-time college student that does not want any added stress to their schedule.

What I plan on learning from this internship is ways to improve my communication and journalism skills. Journalism has always been a passion of mine and I was little bummed when I graduated high school knowing that I wouldn’t be able to do it anymore. I’m glad this opportunity popped up in my life, and I plan on having a lot of fun with it. It’s great being with other students who have the same interests as me and I can’t wait to start this incredible internship and plan on making it a great experience!
