Meet Our Spring Intern, LaShelle!
My name is LaShelle Smith I am from Troy, Ohio. I am 21 years old and I transferred here to BGSU after my freshman year at Sinclair Community College in Dayton Ohio. I am a fourth year here and am majoring in the TLEP program. I have one older sister and one little brother and a niece currently on the way. I got into the idea of event planning when I went to Sinclair, undecided of what I wanted to major in and one day decided to look at my options and event planning really stood out to me but I also knew I wanted to transfer to a university when I figured out what my passion was and BGSU was the perfect choice for me. I love everything the program has to offer and I really like how for my major we have to have 2 practicums and an internship to graduate. I think it’s a wonderful idea because it helps students have some experience in the field before they are actually in the field on their own and have a job in the real world. I chose to do a practicum with Bowling Green Convention & Visitors Bureau because I typically focus on the event planning aspect but I want to know more about how the tourism industry works hands on and practice better customer service. My career goal is to move to a big city preferably Los Angeles and plan big corporate events.
