Growing up I was taught that dreams come true when you believe. With hard work, passion, and support anything is possible. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to make their dreams come true. They are constantly looking for their special moments and unsure of their path. Being able to make other people’s dreams come true is something that I have always strived for.
After planning my own birthday parties and friends parties throughout high school, I realized that I can create those special unforgettable moments with my events. By bringing people together and creating something unique that will hopefully inspire them in their own lives.
I decided my sophomore year of high school that I wanted to be a wedding planner. Since then that dream has evolved and grown into what is now Alexandra Michele Events.
My dream has taken me to Drake University to study Entrepreneurial Management and Marketing. During my time in the College of Business and Public Administration I participated in new business venture projects. Sophomore year Ariel Feltman and I developed a cookie & inspiration delivery service, Cookie Column. Again Junior and Senior year Ariel and I partnered to develop Magnolia, an online wedding planning business. Together we competed in The Pappajohn Student Entrepreneurial Venture Competition.
Besides Drake University, my dream has also taken me to London, England. During the Spring of 2016 I studied abroad with Central College. While I was abroad I studied Visual Merchandising at The London College Of Fashion, and interned with Belle and Bunty, a local bridal boutique. Since coming back to the states I have participated in internships with three different event planners both in Iowa and Illinois.
With the support of family and friends, and a strong passion for creating unforgettable events, I have been able to make my dream a reality. With my stars aligned, I can begin to make others dreams come true.
