Hello, my name is Rebecca Banger and I am a second year student at Drake University. I am currently studying Advertising and Public Relations with emphasis in design. I will be a graduate of Drake’s class of 2018 and hope to work in PR in Des Moines. I am from Farmington, Missouri and am actively involved on my campus and around Des Moines as well. I decided to get involved with the Des Moines European Heritage Association and Christkindlmarket Des Moines planning as I am very interested in the culture of Des Moines and the European influence on the city of Des Moines. It is my dream to experience as much culture as I can and everything the world has to offer. I plan on accomplishing this goal by learning about European culture and hopefully traveling in the future.
