My name is Felicia Feekes. I grew up in a small town, sheldon, Iowa. I had many friends growing up and loved to play sports. I was involved in volleyball, basketball and track. (I ran hurdles) I was in every sport throughout my four years in high school. I got along well with all my classmates and always loved to have a fun time. My senior year I was in the business club and got to go on a few club trips. Once I graduated from high school in 2009, my plan was to move to Arizona and attend Arizona State University. I got cold feet so I decided I was going to stay in Iowa. My best friend was attending Kirkwood Community College and I wanted to check it out. Once I got there I fell in love with the campus. It reminded me of my high school and knew that I was far away from home but not too far away.
I have always been interested in being an event planner and so once I attended Kirkwood Community College I knew its what I really wanted to get my degree in. I attended Kirkwood for two years and what I say it was the best two years of my life. I loved Kirkwood and I would suggest any and everyone to go there. I worked on campus at Student Life. In our office we planned all the fun things for campus and try to get students involved in things on cmapus. I attended all the events such as movies, games, comedians, ect. I also was involved in two clubs on campus and took on leadership roles while in those clubs the two years that I was there. I also met my boyfriend at Kirkwood in one of the clubs. It is very important to get involved and you never know who you will meet. I had an amazing experience in Cedar Rapids and wouldnt change it for the world.
Next I graduated in May of 2011 from Kirkwood and got accepted to Iowa State University. I started attending in August 2011 to get a bachelors degree in Event Management. I have been attending Iowa State and will be graduating in May 2013. I am involved in Event Management Club and am a peer mentor for the event and hospitality freshmen. I had an internship in Summer 2012 at Des Moines Golf and Country Club. Once I graduate from Iowa State I hope to get a job in Kansas City, Mo with some sports team or a event organization.
I have a black lab puppy that keeps me busy everyday. His name is Tiger. He is just one years old and my boyfriend and I got him together. My boyfriend and I have been dating almost two years. He attends University of Northern Iowa and is going to school to be a PE Teacher.
My favorite hobbies are reading, fishing, walking Tiger, exercising daily, hunting deer & pheshant (I own my own bow and shot gun), cooking and cleaning.
I cannot wait to see where life takes me after college, I am nervous but really excited about it! :)
