Beginning a Career in Public Relations

Wednesday, July 27, 2005 is Having a Birthday - Creativity Contest Entries Due July 29

I'd like to introduce you to ChaChanna Simpson, publisher of is a bi-weekly e-zine that addresses the important questions and concerns of twentysomethings (and "twentity" is such a cool word, too!) The site offers real guidance, advice and solutions on how to navigate through the "twenty-somethings" and provides fun interviews with experts. In spring 2001, ChaChanna launched SassyKibba Communications, a freelance copywriting business specializing in direct mail. Since then, her work has been published by local newspapers, Kuji Magazine, MBI, Inc, American Red Cross, Lifestyles Media, Inc. and Direct Media, Inc.

The idea for came to ChaChanna when she walked into her own apartment for the first time and was hit with the realization that she was the one who was supposed to get the light and cable turned on! And so on... A graduate of The College of New Rochelle, ChaChanna is an active member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc, Entrepreneurial Women's Network, Give 'N Take Network and Hal Jackson's Talented Teens International Jamaica.

ChaChanna's contest is asking for your creative writing - she asks that you write two paragraphs -- The beginning of the first paragraph must be "Last night I called you and didn't get an answer so I..." And the last paragraph must end with "...driving down the road looking for my cat."

You have until July 29th to send in your submissions to ChaChanna at You can write about anything you want - ChaChanna asks that it be entertaining. The most entertaining and creative entry will win a blockbuster movie card.

As a PR professional, I constantly am challenged to be more creative, especially in my writing and strategic thinking! More later!
