“My learning experience, things I can achieve, the decisions I make, the people I meet and befriend and the mistakes I make tells me who I am now and who I will become.” As a child, this was a belief that my parents taught me and, so I grew up with it and became very devoted to follow it. My parents always said to me “Learn all you can.” They also taught me that the decisions I make will help me to build my own destination, and the way I treat others will say the person I am.

Being acknowledged by someone for making their day after a long working day or a stressful day is a very rewarding feeling. Since I started college, I have gained some skills and working experience in the Hospitality Industry that have helped me to enforce my values.

In my values, I consider myself a huge believer in furthering one’s education. I consider that the more experience and knowledge I gain the better I become because I have developed a heightened value of what I have been
