I chose to study travel & tourism because:

My greatest strength:
I know how to handle pressure with grace.
My dream job:
Owning a tour company that specializes in luxury Canadian inbound tours.
The most exciting travel trend right now:
Outdoor activities like hiking, trekking and swimming. It’s great for overall health and mental well-being. Plus, a booming luxury market with private customized tours is exciting too!

Thriving in the tourism industry and starting my dream company.
Most memorable travel experience:
Climbing Mount Fuji.
First place I will visit post-pandemic
is around Canada! There are so many beautiful places in this vast country. I would also like to go to Las Vegas to visit my grandparents.
On my bucket list:
My greatest achievement:
Becoming the Baxter Ambassador for Centennial and continuing my career with OTEC during the pandemic.
Worst travel advice I’ve received:
Plan and book your travel once you arrive at the destination. I like to do my research months before arriving at my destination.
One positive and lasting outcome the pandemic will have on the travel industry:
Increased cleanliness and safety procedures, and the ability of stakeholders (governments, healthcare, travel) to be united if needed.
