My name is Rose Kariuki.
A former student at Amboseli Institute of Hospitality and Technology. I joined Amboseli in January 2016 and pursued a Diploma in Hospitality management for a period of two and a half years all the way to July 2018. Amboseli gave me the perfect platform to acquire all the skills and techniques that i need to be successful in the hospitality industry. My great passion for hospitality and hours of hard work kept me going throughout my period of training. I had the best tutors who came in handy to offer me the technical, as well as practical knowledge that opened up my mind to the winder industry. The practical classes made the training more interesting bringing out the beautiful art of hospitality. Of course i had a good share of challenges but the school management was very lenient and this helped me push through. My course mates also played a great role, we helped each other in the different units, exchanged ideas that brought out the contents more clearly.
In level 1 i was attached at Neptune hotel Diani, Mombasa, for a period of 3 months. I trained through various areas i.e front office, reservation, food production, restaurant service, bar service, storekeeping and housekeeping. This period was very useful as it helped to build more confidence and got to experience the real industry.
In level 2 i was attached at The Ark lodge Aberdare Country Club. This time i focused in 3 departments i.e restaurant service, front office and housekeeping. I spent more time in the housekeeping department since it was my main area of interest. I got a lot of support from the entire housekeeping team which was very encouraging.
I graduated from Amboseli Institute on 19th November 2018, with a Diploma in Hospitality management, which came along with a lot of acquired skills that are needed in the industry. After graduating i got to work with a few hotels in Kenya but within a few months i got a job with an international group of hotels. Apparently am working with Six Senses Zighy bay Oman as a villa attendant. Within a period of 1 year i have received a few certificates as a nominated host/employee of the month and an overall winner as the host/employee of the month, thanks to Amboseli for equipping me with competency. As a result i have been offered a chance to train a housekeeping coordinator which will help me raise to greater levels in my career. I believe that i am capable and have taken up to the challenge, trusting God for a brighter future ahead.
