Impacts from Sales

"Nothing like you expected, but everything you were looking for."
So much was learned inside this building!
I can't begin to describe how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to work in Sales. I have learned SO much that I will truly be able to carry with me forever. I've witnessed firsthand the importance of effective communication strategies and functions. I've strengthened my knowledge of the convention sector, added many programs to my technical skill set, and increased my sales techniques and practices. Working on a small team also taught me how to wear many hats as I improved my multi-tasking skills, contributed to a variety of special projects, and made improvements to my department.

Give Kids The World

Throughout this semester, I have become involved with Give Kids The World as a Volunteer. Give Kids The World is a Village that allows children with life-threatening illnesses and their families a place to stay, free-of-charge, while they enjoy everything that Central Florida has to offer. This is where many of the families coming on trips through Make A Wish, and similar organizations, stay during their visit. The Village has many dining options, hosts parties and activities every night, and even includes fun things to do such as train rides, a salon, a pool, a carousel, and an ice cream parlor.
