Katina ArnoldVice President, Corporate Communications, ESPN
When I was young, I had no clue what I wanted to do in life. I was one of those people who didn't declare a major until my junior year in college! I knew I was a people person though and strived to build connections in anything I did. This served me well finding my true passion in public relations.
A Voice of Inspiration
My mother came from Greece at the age of 17 to live with an aunt she never met in order to have a better life. She got married, had kids, and proceeded to put everyone else ahead of herself so we could succeed. She drove and expected the same high-level of achievements from both her son and two daughters. She was technically uneducated in schooling yet one of the wisest women I've ever met.
It's important to build connections with other women in media in order to rise them up. AWM elevates women and plays an extremely important role in making us visible.
