I accomplished...
Coming up with booth designs all on my own.

I learned...
Helping plan an event all the way through, from beginning to end just taught me how detailed you have to be in the events industry and how many moving parts go into the planning process.

Advice for others...
Try to learn every aspect of event planning during your internship, not just one specific task.
