Hello, and welcome to my profile!
My name is Alex and I was born in Ticino, a small region in the Italian part of Switzerland.
I'm currently in my first year in the Hotel Management section of SSSAT, which is the State Tourism and Hotel Management School in Bellinzona, Switzerland.
In my second year of study, the school offers us the opportunity to do a traineeship in the hospitality industry.
I just finished my first traineeship in the Food&Beverage department in England - Oxfordshire. I learned so many things & had the opportunity to practice a lot. I'm very happy and pleased about this experience.
Very soon I'm going to France - Alsace, to do a traineeship in the kitchen & improve my French, I am very looking forward to it!
Before starting this school I studied Photography and after that I decided to start a new challenge so I moved to my origins in England for a year and there I had the opportunity to study English at Leicester college (Leicestershire).
After that I came back to Switzerland and I worked for a year at McDonald’s in Magliaso where I'm still working at the weekends.
I work very well in a team and I love taking on new challenges!
