Alaina Diggs is a go-getter who is not afraid to dig deep and work hard. She reached out to AdMark in search of a summer internship and valuable experience to add to her resume. She works closely with our PR department, writing and reviewing various pieces for different clients. She is excited for this career opportunity and the chance to work with the AdMark team. She hopes it leads her to a passionate career within the communications field.

 

Alaina is a Senior at Wichita State University, majoring in Strategic Communications. She grew up an hour north of Wichita and had always planned to move here for college. Through hard work and dedication she graduated high school with 37 college credit hours, putting her a year ahead in school. This allowed her to complete her Associate of Science from Hutchinson Community College, before transferring to Wichita State in the fall of 2020. Outside of her busy schedule, Alaina enjoys spending time with friends and family, crafting or building projects and all things animals. Combining her love of rescuing dogs with her communication degree is her ultimate dream.
