Meet The Kiss-terns: Rebecca Brandel

June 5, 2018

Hello Everyone! My name is Rebecca Brandel, and like Becca Wojcinski said in the most recent Meet the Kiss-terns post, I also perfer to go by Becca!

The picture I chose I felt was fitting as it's a picture of myself and some friends at a concert at Canalside (I'm the one holding up the peace sign) 

This summer I am going to be working as one of the Events and Promotions Interns and I am absolutely over the moon! This is a long-time term dream of mine, ever since I entered the Kiss 98.5 One Direction Jelly Bean contest in hopes of winning tickets to their show at New Era Field (it was still Ralph Wilson then!) 

This fall I am going into my junior year at Canisius College here in Buffalo, where I am a Communication Studies major with a concentration in Integrated Marketing & Advertising and a minor in Management! At Canisius, I am heavily involved with the Commuter Student Association (I was lucky enough to be voted in as President in the Spring!) I commute to Canisius, and was absoutely devestated I wouldn't be living on campus with everyone when I first started, but after getting involved with the Commuter Student Association,I found a huge passion for planning campus wide events to help commuters stay on campus longer, and take advantage of all of the opporunities college has to offer! My favorite event I got to plan this year was our first ever "Pizza Taste-Off" (similar to the Cupcake Challenege Kiss does!) We brought in 11 pizzerias and gave students the opportunity to taste regular and speciality pizzas from all of them, then place votes on their personal favorites for Best Sauce, Best speciality, and Best Overall Pizzas! I can't wait to see how professional events on an even larger scale are planned through this internship. 

In addition to working at Entercom, I am also a Barista at Starbucks! I've really grown to be a morning person thanks to my job, and I love waking up at 4:30am every morning to make coffee! 

To finish off, here are a few quick fun facts about me! 

Favorite Live Lounge I've attended-Lewis Del Mar 

Favorite Concert I've attended-Twenty One Pilots 

Favorite Drink: Bottleg Bucha! (The other day my friend and I made kombucha floats with Ice Cream and I HIGHLY recommend!) 

Favorite Past-Times: Making lists, talking about coffee, going to Yoga at Power Yoga Buffalo & roller blading by the river! 

I couldn't be more exicted to see where this internship takes me, talk to you all soon!
