Planet Central is excited to welcome our newest team member, Talla Hashemi! Talla joins us as an Assistant Account Executive in our Charlotte office.
- What promoted your interest in Advertising?
I was originally a Public Relations major. However, during my junior year, I signed up for an advertising class. I ended up enjoying it so much that I switched majors! I love how advertising requires the perfect blend of creativity and strategic thinking.
- What’s your favorite advertising campaign to date?
My favorite campaign is the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty, particularly the Real Beauty Sketches short film. I love how powerful the message is, we are more beautiful than we think. It does a great job of showing how critical we are on ourselves verses how others see us.
- What’s next on the bucket list?
Medellin, Colombia! I’ve spent the last few years exploring Central and South America. Earlier this year, I was in northern Colombia. I loved it so much that I made a promise to myself to go back and explore the rest of the country, particularly Medellin. Colombia’s natural beauty and vibrant culture makes it hard not to fall in love at first sight.
- What is your favorite lazy Sunday activity?
I enjoy spending my Sundays taking Pepe (my pup) on a long walk in the park. I’ve also been binge watching Shameless on Netflix.
