Alex Porter, a recent graduate of Mercer University with a B.B.A. in Marketing, is excited to continue learning about marketing and PR in a setting beyond the classroom.

In school, Alex focused on gaining hands-on experience and testing her skills with real clients as a member of Ember Marketing, the University’s full-service marketing agency founded and led by students. She also was a project manager and team lead for IMWE, a nonprofit brand formed through a partnership between students and a group of Rwandan women. IMWE’s stateside sector is operated by a group of marketing research students who work to conduct research, sell product and plan events that positively impact the brand and the women behind it.

Alex has held multiple previous internships, two in marketing and one in account management and is excited to combine these skills while at c21. As a young professional just starting her career, Alex looks forward to the many real world learning experiences that come from an internship with c21 and knows those experiences will propel her into the next step of her career.

When taking a break from watching reality television (any reality show will do), Alex can likely be found at restaurants with friends, browsing the aisles at Target or at a concert.
