Hi everyone! My name is Desiree and I am in my second year at Golden West College studying business administration. I'm grateful for this virtual internship because I have always enjoyed the planning process and wanted to get into either special events or wedding planning. I will be mainly assisting with Social Media and other projects for You're The Bride. From this internship, I hope to enjoy the process of planning a wedding and learn the type of problems a wedding coordinator faces and the process of coming to a solution. My hobbies include exploring cities, trying new food, and spending time with my friends and family.
