Graduate Experiences

I stumbled upon the North American Academy of Wedding & Event Planning certificate through the Student Event Planning Association. I started the certificate right before I was accepted to intern in the White House spring 2016. I was very passionate about becoming an event planner and was glad that I found an economical and credible course that I could take online. One of the greatest parts of the course that I loved is the diversity of the content. It breaks down the information into digestible pieces that prepare you to be successful in the event planning field. The information is universal and I still refer to my notes today for goal setting or planning different events in my life.
