Meet Destinee Bullard
St. Petersburg College graduate Destinee Bullard made her television debut on the Wendy Williams Show during a summer internship with the Home Shopping Network (HSN).
Destinee is an SPC Associate in Arts graduate, and she is now pursuing a bachelor's degree in Public Relations from the University of Florida. She said her previous role as a Social Media Intern for SPC's marketing department prepared her for this latest opportunity.
"St. Petersburg College set the foundation for any internship that I do in the future," Destinee said. "I gained a lot of experience in SPC's marketing department, which I can execute at any public relations job I receive."
Learning the ropes at HSN internship
Destinee and another intern were selected to model clothing from Wendy Williams' fashion line during their HSN internship. They were featured in their own segments during the live television show.
"It was such an amazing experience," she said. "It was also so cool to see how HSN prepares for a big show like this."
She considers the connections she's made at St. Petersburg College key to her ongoing success.
"I give a lot of credit to the faculty and staff at St. Petersburg College, who pushed me to do what I thought was impossible," Destinee said. "I am so proud to say that my career started here. I learned so many new skills - from reporting to blogging and social media marketing - that will help me excel in my career."
