To many people who are relatively unfamiliar with the industry, the term hospitality may sound vague and imprecise. The hospitality industry is an umbrella that encompasses many different, unique and interesting career paths. Being a student at the ihti provides me with a worldwide opportunity in my career objectives and provides an insight intended to be thought-provoking yet practical for anyone considering an international assignment in Hotel Management.

ihti has provided special attention to its students. It has created in me adaptability, endurance and even discipline that the Hospitality Industry demands of. Their measures and means of producing world class quality managers is what brought me here. And with no doubt, I am now world-class material.

My main objective of joining ihti was on my personal interest in the Hospitality Industry. It's quite a challenging career, but I am devoted to learn as much as I can to become an executive chef in one of the luxurious hotels in my country. I have a keen talent in the kitchen and given the opportunity, I would like to expose myself fully to this industry. By the time I leave Kenya for Rwanda, I would like to be a fully qualified chef.

Personally, ihti is a very good is a very good school in Hospitality Management not just in Kenya but in East Africa as a whole. It is my hope that the institution would open a branch in Tanzania to meet the needs of those in my country. With its international connections, it is sure to become the Hospitality and Tourism Education and Training Institution of choice in Africa.
