Hi! I’m Nicole Kmiotek, but Nikola to most family and friends. My family is from Poland but currently living in Chicago, IL. I am a junior studing Public Relations, Intercultural Communications, and Marketing at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.
PRSSA is a huge part of my life. I joined the organization in the Fall of 2012 thinking that it would be nothing more than another RSO, but I was so wrong. Since joining I have met so many wonderful and talented people who motivate me every day. I serve as the current PRSSA President for the Raymond D. Wiley Chapter at SIUC.
PRSSA is the reason that I am so passionate about PR and it will always have a place in my heart.
