Meet our Summer Marketing Assistant & Content Curator: Lizzie Eaton
What college do you attend and what is your major:
Florida State University, Marketing
Where did you grow up?
I was born in New York City and lived there until I was five and then moved to Parkland, Florida which I have called home ever since.
What interests you in social media management?
Social Media Management is so multi-faceted and is such a useful tool for any company. To be able to post your own content and reach different audiences with your unique style is so interesting. Social Media is so relevant to everyone and is an efficient way to get the message out about your brand. There is always so much to learn and grow from as the times are always changing and social media is changing with it. I like the idea of always having the opportunity to do something new. If I can help a company or brand be successful with the online, social media strategies I provide, then that would be the best reward for the work I do.
What is your favorite social media platform?
Instagram! It is so diverse and there is so much to see all the time. It is the most updated way to stay in touch and keep up with all the latest trends. Instagram allows you to show a more personal side but also make it look great at the same time! It is also a great way for a business to share fun pictures, event updates, and so much more. It is only enhancing its features from here and I am so excited to learn more about it!
What advice would you give your high school self?
I would definitely tell myself to have more fun and not stress about everything. Although I am only going into my Sophomore year of college, I have learned so much from my high school self that I carry with me all the time. High school me was stressed out about every little thing and took that time for granted. I would tell myself to not let the stress get the best of me and enjoy the time I had at home and in high school. It goes by way too fast and that time should not be spent being so stressed about nothing all the time. I would also tell my high school self that everything will be okay and you will go to a great college. Go Noles!

Is there a brand or a company you would love to work with on social media?
I don’t have a specific company in mind right now but one day I would love to work with a non-profit organization or any business that gives back. I want to help manage their social media and spread their message to the world. Non-profit organizations do so many amazing things with sometimes limited resources so I would love it if I could help play a role in promoting their cause with any help I can provide.
I absolutely love playing ping pong and I got tons of practice in quarantine so I am basically a pro now!! Also, whenever I get the chance I love to play any sport as long as I’m staying active. I also love to spend time with my friends and family, or just relax and watch videos to get some downtime in.

I need my iPhone on me at all times! It is such an amazing way to stay in touch with my friends and family near and far. It can provide me with endless hours of entertainment, whether that be on social media, Youtube, Netflix, or even playing games. I always have something to do! Of course, it is also a lifesaver with the Maps feature as I am the worst with directions and the camera is the best for capturing all of the memories!
Who is your role model?
My parents are my role models. They have shaped me into the person I am today and have helped me accomplish all of my dreams. My parents are always by my side cheering me on as my number 1 fans. They have provided me with so many important lessons that I use every day. I am constantly learning from them and they inspire me to always try my best at everything I do. My mom and dad are some of the most hardworking, dedicated, caring people I have ever met and I aspire to be just like them when I grow up and have a family of my own. The love and care they have for my sister and I is unmatched and I am so lucky to have them as my parents. My parents will forever be the most influential people in my life and will always be my heroes!
