Hospitality has been a service for people all over the world to travel vicariously through both time and cultures. As a student at The Art Institute of Philadelphia studying Fashion Marketing, Public Relations, and, the importance of Hospitality as not been lost upon me. Hospitality and communication has often been used to provoke thought, express true concern, and yes even disseminate propaganda for an organization, corporation or genuine idea for people to relate to and feel both comfortable and fulfilled an experience that felt was lost in today's world, the ultimate catering. I have long been a fan of above and beyond quality service, but more so it's ability to reach people who might not otherwise have the means to travel and experience great service. I would love to join this interest to grow with the company, and demonstrating my leadership qualities, people skills and, my professional drive to carry out workplace responsibilities providing the greatest experience to guests at your company.
