Studying for an exam

Welcome to my ePortfolio! I am a Communication Management and Design major with a minor in Fine Arts.  I expect to graduate in the spring of 2014.

 I am hoping to become a corporate event planner and to someday own my own business. Growing up my passion was art. I loved to draw and be creative, and whenever there was a program that taught others how to master their craft in drawing, I watched it. Even to this day I always try to make sure that my personality shines through in all of my work whatever it may be.

 Throughout my life I have been someone who prefers attention to detail and always strives to be well organized. Upon entering college I explored many career options and realized that although I love art my heart lies with event planning. I have always been a fan of classic movies and would often watch many with family. The grace and poise emulating from actresses such as Audrey Hepburn and Doris Day have had an impact on how I carry myself and how I see myself as a person.  

 My extracurricular activities at Ithaca College have helped me to better understand my strengths and weaknesses. In taking on e-board positions in both Amani Gospel Singers and the Art Student Union, I have quickly realized that I enjoy being a leader. These experiences equipped me with the skills to work well in groups, to be organized, to understand better the needs of others, and to communicate well in public settings. I am learning more about myself everyday and will use the knowledge I obtain to have success in my future career plans.
