About me

IMG_20130719_134517 - CopyHello my name is Mirka. I’m an exchange student from the Czech Republic and this is my first blog set up for the New Communication Technologies course at Griffith University.

In the next six months I am going to enjoy Australia as much as possible but also study hard. (Seriously!)

I am enrolled in the following courses: New Communication Technologies, Introduction to Public Relations and Public Writing. I have a previous experience with PR, but I would like to learn a different approach and points of view of overseas university and country.  I took the Public Writing course as it is very closely connected to public relations. I would like to develop my writing skills, however, the assignments seems to be quite challenging…

I have also studied at the University of International and Public Relations in Prague and at Charles University in Prague. Furthermore, thanks to the Erasmus program, I had also a great opportunity to study Corporate Communication at EFAP School of Communication in Paris, France. I love travelling and sports (white water rafting, canoeing and skiing).

Since the beginning of my studies I have been trying to apply all my knowledge step by step to practice. I had a chance to work in both, the field of journalism and public relations.

Each week I’ll post summary and reflection of  the lectures. Welcome and enjoy reading!
