I hold numerous responsibilities within my internship, encompassing various aspects such as attending events, staff meetings, and facilitating communication with DJs and vendors. While a considerable part of my role involves autonomous work, often extending beyond conventional office hours, another integral aspect entails curating promotional content for social media platforms. Managing the Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok accounts, I ensure consistent and engaging posts to bolster our online presence. Another huge part of successful events is giveaways through our social media and physical attendance which is another thing I coordinate for the businesses. I also am in charge of working with sponsorships which include local brands in Ames, Bumble, Budweiser, and more.


Some of my most notable achievements stem from orchestrating events, where my responsibilities span from meticulous preparation and coordination to ensuring an early presence for overseeing decorations and briefing staff on operational protocols. Witnessing the success of an event, with attendees buzzing about its excellence, stands as one of my proudest accomplishments.

Through these tasks, I am cultivating invaluable insights into the significance of responsibility and effective communication, positioning myself at the forefront of pivotal company affairs.
