(lighthearted music) Hi, I’m Renee. I’m a graduate of the hotel operations management program at Centennial College and I am currently working in retail. I worked for 10 years in retail management and I truly loved and enjoyed it. But I felt that I had kind of reached a ceiling and I decided it was time to make a change. In my research I found hospitality and found that it would most likely have a really strong connection to me and what I was already doing and what I loved and to be able to do it on a different level. As determined as I was to make this change and take the next step, I was also terrified that I wouldn’t do well. I might not meet anybody, I might eat lunch by myself and it feels like going back to high school, but the college version. It wasn’t until my very first morning, it was a Tuesday, and sitting down in class and actually being there that I felt completely at ease and comfortable and knew that it would be an experience that I would be able to get through. All of my hard work really paid off in every mark that I would check and I just ran at it as fiercely as I could and I came out successful on the top. And I couldn’t ask for anything better for my time going back to school. (lighthearted music)
