I’ve been home for 4 days now, and it still amazes me when I think back on the past month of my life.

I have dreamed about the city of lights since I was a little girl, and I was a little nervous that it wouldn’t live up to the image I created in my head.

But the amazing thing was that Paris was everything I had ever dreamed of and more. Paris was beautiful, I loved everything about it, and the best part about it was that I got to experience it with two amazing woman, my mom and grandma.

But I owe the biggest thank you to The American Pavilion for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime. (Anyone interested in film, business, hospitality, or the culinary arts should DEFINITELY consider their internship program!)

Thank you for the opportunity to be an intern for the past three weeks. I learned so much about the film and entertainment industry, but I also developed my skills as a event planner.  I made friendships that will last for a lifetime, and I was able to network with some amazing people who inspired me to continue to chase my dreams.

Thank you for the chance to walk the red carpet, not once, but TWICE, and see two amazing films.

Lastly, Thank you for opening my eyes to a new section of the world. France, specifically Cannes, is a beautiful city with so much to offer.

I feel like I’m a better person because of the experiences I had on this trip. I learned a lot about the world, the industry, and myself along the way.

But now, it’s back to reality. Time to get back to work and school (and work on paying off all my French shopping bills).

So thank you, thank you for the memories.
