Michele McIntosh
Three words to describe me:
Persistent, optimistic, disciplined.
Why I chose to study travel and tourism:
Because I am passionate about customer service and the thought of travelling to any part of the world is exciting to me. Travel is the only field where I believe both my passion and my excitement could be satisfied.
My dream job:
While in college, I was inspired by my professors and what they have achieved in the industry before they started teaching. They have all been leaders in their professional careers, that’s when I decided I would also become a leader. I aspire to be a brand leader and to represent it throughout the globe.
Most exciting travel trend:
Sustainability. Tourism will only be welcomed and appreciated if it supports sustainability. Seeing major tour operators implement sustainable practices in their companies and promoting sustainable tourism is very exciting.
One thing I can’t travel without:
My music!
My favourite travel experience:
I visited San Francisco and did a road trip to Las Vegas. The drive included desert, farms and mountains, which I had never seen all in just one day.
On my bucket list:
Machu Picchu, the Amazon, Petra, Dead Sea, and Bali.
My greatest achievement (so far):
Being nominated for the Baxter Student Ambassador Program
and being named the winner from my college is my greatest achievement so far.
Best travel advice I’ve received:
Travel as many places as possible because travel has abundance
of knowledge, and it makes you a better person.
