Arc 3 Communications Social Media Marketing Intern Kirbe Bostick is a third year student at Kennesaw State University majoring in communications with a focus in media and entertainment studies. Her interests include comedy, anthropology, digital marketing and all things social media. In the future, she hopes to be a creative director for a marketing firm or a magazine.
Kirbe developed an interest in marketing and communications well before college. During her time at Marietta High School she began a grassroots breast cancer awareness fundraising effort. The project entitled “Pink-y Promise” was created to honor her mother, who had previously fought with breast cancer. Kirbe created and sold several rounds of t-shirts to the local Marietta community. The campaign was spread by word of mouth and social media outreach. The entire campaign was able to raise $5,000, that was then donated to the American Cancer Society. The “Pink-y Promise” project was pivotal in Kirbe’s life, as it introduced her to the world of marketing and communications and the importance of an effective message.
In her spare time, Kirbe enjoys volunteering. “As a college student, I have a variety of volunteer experiences that have contributed to making me a motivated and passionate public servant,” says Bostick. She currently serves as a volunteer with the Marietta Square Art Walk that promotes local artists in the city and is an office volunteer with Bristol Hospice, which provides palliative care in the Vinings area. She also serves as a mentor to Kennesaw State University freshman and transfer students as a part of the university’s Odyssey Peer Mentoring Program.
Kirbe’s interest in the arts also finds her attending as many music concerts and comedy shows as her schedule allows! She’s been lucky to see some of her favorite acts this year such as Hannibal Buress, Hasan Minhaj, Chance the Rapper, and The 1975.
Her diversity in music is reflective of her own ambitions and experiences in marketing. Her goal is to gain as much marketing experience as possible. “I am grateful for the internship opportunity at Arc 3 where I can work on a diverse range of projects and gain comprehensive experience in social media marketing,” Bostick said.
