about. 

Hi! I’m Marcus Donaldson, a senior public relations major at Kent State University. I’m interested in pursuing career opportunities in brand management, online community building and event planning. I also enjoy following conversations surrounding advocacy and social justice.

I know. These aren’t always the most fun, lighthearted talks. But, like others who belong to traditionally marginalized groups, I follow these conversations and act as an advocate out of a need to survive in our current social climate. It's a climate that’s sometimes uncomfortable, but, with work, ever evolving.

As a budding professional, I want to contribute to that positive evolution. I’m especially interested in how public relations can be used to advance causes and bring about social change. I talk about these social issues on my blog, and share perspectives from the lived experiences of marginalized communities, academics and public intellectuals leading the conversation. Share your thoughts with me on Twitter at thoughtMD, or shoot me an email at thoughtmd@gmail.com.
