Showtime Events is excited to introduce our newest intern, Jasmian McDonald. Jasmian, known by most as “Jas”, is a 21-year-old senior at North Carolina State University. She is majoring in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations. She is looking forward to graduating in May.
Born in Charlotte, NC, Jas spent most of her life in the small town of Sanford, NC, where she grew up as an only child with her mother and Toy Poodle, Diamond. Always having a passion for entertaining, she was a competitive dancer for 15 years and a cheerleader for her high school.
Over the summer of 2010, Jas got the opportunity to intern with Nordstrom where she fell in love with fashion and event planning. She hopes to get the opportunity to have a career in Fashion Public Relations and Event Planning.
While she is not a huge fan of traveling outside of the country, Jas got the opportunity to travel to Australia in March of 2010 where she described the country as beautiful. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, singing, shopping (probably a little too much), going out, and watching television. Some of her favorite shows include Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and the Real Housewives Franchise. She enjoys working out and has recently taken up spin, or cycling, as her work out of choice in order to counteract her love of food—anything fried to be exact!
While interning at Showtime Events, Jas has been directly involved in the planning and execution of multiple corporate and social events. In the coming months, she will continue to work with the Showtime North Carolina staff and their clients to gain further experience in the special events industry.
