Intern Feature – David

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012|Elexu Team Posts|by David Young

Hey Elexu community. I’m David, a recent college graduate and a new member of the Elexu team. I wanted to share my thoughts with you about why I got involved and how this new platform can help others just like me.

I majored in Broadcast Journalism – Mass Communications, and my dream is to one day start my own media consulting firm because I believe mass awareness of a problem is the first step to fixing it. I want to use my firm to assist low budget organizations and charities to help them get their message out so that people can more easily receive help. This is particularly close to my heart because it affects my immediate family as my mother was diagnosed with MS several years ago. I would hope that my media firm could one day work with groups like National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Elexu was a perfect fit for me because they get everyone plugged in and directly connected with great brands and charities through their exciting competitions. Until I get to the point where I can open my own media consulting firm, I can at least get further involved with the MS Society by launching a competition of my own to help them raise funds. It will give me a chance to take my career into my own hands, gain the attention of industry professionals, and become more directly involved with a charity important to me.

For those of you out there with a dream like me but are lacking the means to reach it, Elexu is here to help. Through many different outlets, such as competitions, networking and soon to be Internet TV, Elexu can empower you too…and here’s one of my favourite parts, Elexu’s events are driven by users like you and me (that’s why it’s called “elects you”).

I hope this helped you understand why it’s such a useful and exciting new platform and if you’re interested sign up for Elexu’s Beta test or more information check out our earlier blog posts.
