“Being a student ambassador means being a leader… more importantly, having a valuable opportunity to be heard. Travel professionals are the ones who can initiate shifts in the industry. I see my role as a Student Ambassador [as one of] creating awareness among travel professionals, educating people and the promotion of more responsible ways of travel.”
