-I’m trying to get in the groove of being an at home hair stylist. I specialize in crochet braids!
-I’m an Event Assistant which is pretty fun!
So far, I’ve helped with 1 event and took the lead for another event!
The first event was a baby shower. My job was to help set up the decorations. I applied the chair covers, table cloths, put together the centerpieces, and helped set up the dessert table!
I’ve done event planning on my own for family and friends but this is the first time that I’ve been involved with a professional event planner! So this is a whole new learning experience for me!
Then the event planner asked if I could take the lead for an 8th Grade Formal that was Hollywood Themed and the colors were red, black, and gold. The event plannaer had another event she was planning on the same day so she asked for my help on this one!
My job for this event was to prepare the dessert table and the customized step and repeat (backdrop that guests take pictures in front of).
I set up the back drop curtains for the dessert table. We had customized cookies made, pretzel sticks, marshmallows that were posed as mini popcorn! We also had an assortment of different chocolates and candies! When the event was over, ALL the candy was gone! So I know the kids definitely enjoyed it! Haha!
Event planning is a potential business that I want to start in the future once I gain more experience! I believe this is a great start!
Yes I do have a lot of things on my plate! But I love it because I’m working towards all my goals and it’s going very well so far! =)

*If you have a dreams or goals GO FOR IT! You may not have all the knowledge or resources but there is always someone out there who does! All you have to do is research, ask around and you will be surprised at how much help you receive!
The worst that can happen is they will say no but you won’t know unless you TRY! And even if someone says no, KEEP ASKING and KEEP RESEARCHING! That’s how I got the Event Assistant gig! Nothing is impossible unless YOU think it is! So change you mindset, you are more capable than you think, and go out there and fight for what you want! If you need help with something, feel free to ask me and I’ll try and help! =)
