Hello! My name is Alyssa Lamb and I am a first year student at The Ohio State University. I am currently working on trying to finish my first semester here at college and I am absolutely loving it. I am studying Hospitality Management, and in the future I really want to be a professional party planner. My goal is to be able to plan events that can help others such as charity events, or even a simple party for a company.

My top strength is responsibility and I believe that to be so true to me. In the description of this strength it states that in whatever I do I feel that failure is not an option, and I will do whatever I need to complete a task. I personally believe that responsibility means that people can rely on me and know that I will always be there for when they need something. One of my strongest beliefs is that no matter what you do in life you should do it to the best of your ability, if you don't then how will you discover your true meaning here on Earth? With that in mind no other trait in my opinion better describes me than responsibility.

One assignment that I enjoyed in EHE Survey was the Time Management Activities. This assignment really helped me map out how much time I should allot for studying, and for me time. I learned that not only is important to make time for your school work but you need to make sure you have time to breathe and try new things. This assignment also helped me visualize how I need to arrange my day in order to be as successful as I can be. In the future I am going to continue to use daily schedules to help me define what I need to get done in a day. This will be important especially when I start my job as a party planner. I will need to make sure I am meeting deadlines and doing each task to the best of my abilities, all while trying to maintain a happy life as well.

Another assignment that I felt was very beneficial to me were the Curriculum Plan activities. For this assignment we had to use our degree audit and plan out the classes that we will be taking in the next several semesters here at Ohio State. Then after we had picked out the classes to take we met with our survey instructor and they also gave advice on suggested classes to take. This assignment really helped me understand how to read my degree audit and how to start knocking out certain requirements for graduation. Overall this assignment helped me figure out classes that will help me in my future career.
