We’re so excited to introduce you to the bright and organized Event Intern Brianna! She is one our our fabulous summer interns, and we are so excited to have her! Let’s learn a little more about Brianna:
Graduated from Wayne Central High School and now entering Junior Year as a Corporate Communication Major at Duquesne University pursuing a Bachelors.
This is my first internship in the Event Planning and Marketing field as I originally thought I wanted to do Journalism. I had two internships, one at Channel 10 in Rochester and one writing for the Williamson Newspaper. Since I decided to switch my major, I have been involved firsthand in the Event Planning and Marketing of the Orientation program at Duquesne as well as taken an Event Planning Class in which we planned a campus-wide event for an on-campus client. I currently work at a Country Club where Weddings, Banquets and Parties are constant throughout the year and I get a close look when working with our Events Director on those.
Hopes For The Internship
I hope to get a better idea of what it is like to be in an official Event Planning Corporation. As the field includes much of all that is associated with Communication, such as Marketing, Advertising, Public Relations, etc., it is my hope that I will have a better understanding as to what it is like for it all to come together. I also hope to gain experience in this field because it is something I am seriously interested in as a career when I graduate.
Favorite Thing About The Industry
Organization! I love the organizing and planning aspect associated with this particular industry. It is so much fun to me to see so many working and moving parts come together in the end of the process to make one successful event! I also love that it is an active field where you are constantly interacting with people, your team members and other companies as well, not simply an individual job where you do everything on your own.

Free Time Fun
I absolutely love all sports. I played them all throughout middle school and high school and now continue in intramural and club sports in college. I have loved Horseback-riding since I was 2, and have been doing it competitively for as long as I can remember. I currently have a horse named Ellie. I also love to write and read and enjoy music as well. I have played both the trumpet and the piano since I was a little girl. I also love to spend time with my family and my dogs as well as my friends.
My plan is to find a career doing what I love everyday so that I can find the utmost happiness. I want to have a family and a successful life where I can travel and see the world!
I was the first member of my family, immediate and extended, to leave home and go out of state for college.
