Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
About me, Opal Cogswell
I first realized I wanted to get into the wedding and event industry when I was about 10 and went with my mother to her wedding planning appointments. I loved the storybook element to the events. The photographs of the beautiful settings and moments made me want to be part of the whole process. Since then I have planned things with my high school, done a few community center fundraisers and love planning my birthday parties. I am new to the business so I haven't started more of a portfolio yet, but I hope to get that experience soon.
Training and Background
I have training in Event Coordinating and Wedding Planning. I have a A.S. degree in General Business. I also am studying to be a travel agent.
