Angela Robinson is a senior at Georgia State University (GSU) studying journalism with a concentration in public relations and minor in marketing. Her goal is to work in communications at a public relations or marketing firm with a focus on lifestyle brands.
Robinson is a native of Lawrenceville, Georgia, and Long Island. She attended Indian Springs School in Birmingham, Alabama.
In high school, Robinson sang in the choir, was a member of the Key Club, served as proctor in her dorm and played on the softball team.
Her original career choice was to become a doctor. She had plans to become a pediatric endocrinologist. Later, she realized her passion was in journalism and marketing.
After becoming a journalism major, Robinson is gaining as much college experience as possible. She spent a semester working for the Black Student Alliance and Dominion City GSU supporting public relations and marketing.
She also is a Residence Hall Association representative.
Robinson interned at Georgia Equality, an LGBT+ organization, from May-August 2017. Her first endeavor was creating event materials for the organization’s yearly gala, Evening for Equality. She worked on group power mapping, as well as editing press releases and writing media advisories. Angela also put together “festival bins” – comprised of literature and prizes – that would be taken to Pride events and festivals across the state. During her time there, Robinson learned how to work in a close-knit team in a nonprofit environment.
Upon graduating, Robinson wants to go to work in her field right away.
