How did you get into PR?

I've always loved to read and write so when I went to community college I took a few Journalism classes and fell in love with it. When I transferred to university, they didn't have a journalism degree so I switched to Communications where I took classes on public relations, I really enjoyed them so I decided to make it my emphasis and in the end made a career out of it.
