Graduate Experiences

I have always been creative, imaginable by wanting to create events at my work. I still do and I love it. I had an opportunity to join the certificate course in Event Planning at the Academy. It`s fun, it’s challenging and sometimes you need to try all your best to reach your own level to find your own goals. It helped me a lot to do all of the assignments in this course. There is always a new chapter in every event. Now, I´m thinking as a planner.
