with her father watching the nightly news. While attending college, her choice of a double major successfully merged her key interests of political studies and international relations with media relations and crisis management.

Before joining the Haj Media team, she interned with the Armenian Assembly of America, where she researched war crimes carried out by the Azerbaijan military during the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War. Her research took place in the early months after the war had ended, when information on the timeline of events was less clear. She used international news coverage to follow the movement of Azerbaijan’s military forces to track the dates war crimes occurred, as well as the Armenian lives lost in the process. As a third-generation Armenian American, Emily has a passion for human rights and justice. While working on her research for her Armenian Assembly internship, she observed how the media can impact the flow of information in war.

During her senior year of college, she focused her career interests on public relations. She accepted an internship at a retail public relations firm in Miami, where she learned the basics of the field, including communicating directly with clients, orchestrating holiday photoshoots and helping onboard new team members.

In the classroom, Emily got field experience working with an actual client during her capstone class at the University of Miami. The 14-person class acted as a public relations firm to create a campaign for PAWS4you, a local canine nonprofit organization. Serving as the partnerships team leader, she managed research and outreach to local businesses, as well as networking opportunities for the client. The class campaign was a notable success and is currently in use.

While interning at Haj Media, Emily was curious about Haj Media’s niche area of public relations. She frequently sat down with George Haj to learn how the job differed from other public relations industries. Throughout her internship, Emily got a taste of legal, corporate and nonprofit-focused public relations. She worked closely with Haj Media’s nonprofit clients, Conservation Concepts, where she brought creativity to graphic design and social media projects. She also worked on media -monitoring for various clients and internal business matters. Emily is now looking forward to expanding her range of work at Haj Media and continuing to learn from the rest of the team as a Communications Associate.
