My name is Marianne Dzikas, I am currently an assistant manager at a pizzeria in the Bronx. I am looking very much to hopefully starting my own event planning business, this course has truly opened my eyes to new ideas beyond what I thought I could make of myself. My goal is to help create experiences for people. Even though I am an introvert, I do love working with all kinds of people and take great pride in simply making their day better even simply by saying a few kind words. Having worked in a Pizzeria for almost ten years, I have learned to handle many difficult situations and empathize with challenging customers. I never take anything personally, you really never know what another person is going through.
My project's theme was "something blue". I may have threw in too many shades, but the concept I concocted was to reveal the calmness of the color and renowned wedding quote and tradition. I tried to incorporate the "couples" old family traditions with the simple childhood game of corn hole along with a projector that played over later on in the reception of old pictures throughout their lifetime.
