Being selected as a representative for my hotel’s ROTY is one of the biggest achievement for career. On top of that, being the 1st representative for my hotel is a very honorable achievement for me, as my hotel was only opened on 12th October 2017.  I feel that this journey has opened my eyes and widen my perspective of a Receptionist and made me feel very proud of my job.

I’ve learnt a lot from the workshop provided by ARDE, the trainers are all very knowledgeable in the hotel industry and have made me realized, this industry is very small. ROTY journey have benefited me by opening up more opportunities in my career. An example would be, that I’ve recently got promoted to a Supervisor in my department which i feel grateful for.  The biggest takeaway from ROTY are the participants and finalists that went through the journey together with me. They are competitors turned good friends after the whole competition which I am very thankful for.

I strongly believe that ROTY is a great event that would help future participants increase their passion and pull their potential to heights they have never imagined before. I would definitely encourage my juniors to reach to be nominated for ROTY in the future as it’s a memory I’d love to keep for long.
