I was responsible for...
I had to find and book the vendors for the events, manage who was suppose to be where and when. I also got to come up with some creative ideas and implement them into our events.

I accomplished...
One of my greatest accomplishments was putting together the end of the year banquet. I had to find all the vendors for this event and come up with fun activities for the kids. The event got a lot of positive feedback.

I learned...
My greatest lesson that I learned was time management. You think you have a lot of time to plan for an event but you really don't. The event comes up faster than you expected.

Advice for others...
My advice is, stay organized and use time management well. Also, make sure you pick an internship that you will have fun at. If you pick one that isn't fun it will drag on.
