Introducing Hailey Kirkpatrick
My Summer 2020 Internship
26 Daisies Events and Catering
26 Daisies is an Event Planning and Catering located in Sugar Land, Texas. This company plans, creates, and executes private events. They are a small business that started in 2014 and is owned and operated by two life long best friends whose mission is as follows:
"We're memory makers.
We're seekers of joy.
We're doers, thinkers, dreamers.
We work hard and love BIG"
My Internship Duties
As an intern, it is my responsibility to communicate with clients for "post-COVID" events, help plan details, create menus, understand the in's and out's of how they do their event planning, etc. I would be in charge of communicating with vendors, venues, and clients for details concerning the events. I will also be learning food photography, how to prep food, and how to create templates and mock menus for upcoming events. I needed no academic requirements, I only needed to have an interest and drive for the event planning industry. This is a paid internship. I am paid $12/hour and work Monday-Friday. Saturday and Sunday are reserved for personal leisure and are usually only occupied if there is an event planned.
In this internship, I have improved my organizational, planning, marketing, and financial skills. I created a new organizational system, learned how and why certain items are priced, and how to improve traffic on all social media platforms.
