Why LOCAL recognition is just as important!
The Importance of LOCAL Recognition!
Last year, I had the honor to receive 5 awards in my hometown, Dallas, Texas. I believe all of my efforts was awarded, from costume designing to event production. It was a dream come true to be celebrated by those in my community and supporters. I will forever be grateful for those that took at the time to recognize and most importantly, celebrate my efforts. With that being said...
We should be more appreciative of the LOCAL support and recognition we obtain. My honest opinion, I believe many people are not appreciative of the time and effort it takes to give recognition. Please be more grateful when people take out the time to celebrate your efforts or brand. Event coordinators invest time, energy and money into coordinating amazing award shows. From booking the venue space to reaching out to potential sponsors... Trust me it's a lot...
