Is It Such A Bad Thing to Be A ‘PR Girl’?

Sometimes I cringe when I see a #PRGirl post or even an account solely dedicated to the term on Instagram. Are we belittling ourselves by using that term? Do we want to be seen as everything cliché that comes along with that label? Personally, I’m not going to take serious…
