    Hello sir,
    Actually I’m very interested in event management as well as in teaching and other art forms as well. I don’t want to do just one thing, I want to do as much things as I can. Currently I’m pursuing my graduation in English literature, I’m doing a certificate course of French language, also I’m doing an internship in a renowned event management company. So, could you please guide which course should I pursue next?
