My name is Destinee Bullard, and I will be assisting Maria with answering some questions on this blog. I graduated in the spring of 2015 from SPC with my Associate in the Arts degree. I now am a third year student at the University of Florida studying Public Relations.
I would like to tell you all a little bit about me. I graduated from Gibbs High School where I attended the Pinellas County Center for the Arts as a theatre major. I love the arts. Acting and singing will always be two of my favorite hobbies. I also have an unconditional love for writing. I write poetry, essays, short stories and plays. I once wrote a play entitled The Courageous 12, which ended up being performed by professional actors at American Stage Theater Company in St. Petersburg. Along with acting, singing and writing, soccer has been a huge part of my life. I have played soccer since I was 6 years old. I started off playing defender and then I permanently became a goalkeeper. Family is the last thing on my list that I would like to tell you about. I love spending time with my family. My dad is actually an academic advisor at SPC on the Seminole Campus! My mom is a registered nurse at All Children’s Hospital, and I have a little brother who is a basketball and football player in high school.
SPC was a pleasure the two years that I attended. I learned so much from not only my professors but the faculty, staff and the whole SPC family. There are an endless amount of resources and opportunities for students. The thing that I love the most about SPC would have to be the endless support and guidance students are given. I have been fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to partake in an internship in Marketing and Strategic Communications in SPC’s District Office. This will give me some much needed experience in my future career field.
I have been involved in many different things at SPC. During my second semester, I was hired as a peer advisor in which my duties including assist first-time-in-college students with planning their coursework, developing a My Learning Plan, registering for classes, and informing them on different majors and degree programs. After Peer Advising, I decided to join the Seminole Campus’ Social Media Team. Being on the team gave me my first experience in the career field that I would like to pursue. After that I received my current internship! I have also been heavily involved in the Student Government Association on both the Seminole and St. Pete/Gibbs campuses.
Since graduating, I have moved to Gainesville, FL where I am working towards my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Florida. So far UF has been amazing. I am applying so much that I have learned at SPC to my work here. Can’t wait to share more of my experiences with you all!
I look forward to answering some of your questions! Ask away!
