About me

I am a graduate student from The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management with a degree in BBA (Hons) in International Hospitality Management. I have also completed Diploma in both, Patisserie and Cookery from International Centre for Culinary Arts (ICCA).
In terms of experience, I have gained experience in the internship where I worked in the Front Office department in JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai and was the Finance Coordinator and Chef for both, Ashin and EAHM Food Fest for the years 2017 and 2018. Furthermore, I have also worked in Yas Hotel Abu Dhabi Pastry Kitchen for Formula 1 2019 (F1) event.
I believe that to achieve desired goals, to be successful and to be happy in the workplace, it is essential to truly love and be passionate about the industry that has been chosen.
With a strong passion for the hospitality industry, I am looking forward to build my image in the professional industry utilizing the skills that I have gained from my degree.
