GRADUATED

I know it has been a long, long time. But by now I am pretty sure that you are used to me updating this blog here and there. This month has yet again been another crazy one. Accomplished some AMAZING things off my bucket list! Went home for a visit and GRADUATED, had one of my best friends, Aimee from Scotland move in, became a tipped trainer, said goodbye to some of the most amazing people I've ever met (one of them being Steve, another best friend I have down here) and had a Canadian title passed down to me... which I will explain later.

For now I have to write these past few crazy weeks in separate blog posts. So I should probably start at the beginning of where I left off last. The next big thing that happened after the holiday season was me going home to Canada for another visit!

The first week of February I got to go home for my graduation! So exciting. It was quite the visit. I got to celebrate my 21st birthday with all my amazing friends, visit with my godchild, aunt, uncle and cousins, spend a ton of time with my family, catch up with a few close friends and visit Red River's new college campus for Hospitality in downtown Winnipeg.

It is actually so surreal having finally graduated from Red River College. That place has taught me more than I would have expected. They taught me the ins and outs of the hospitality industry, the business aspects of the field, professionalism, and most importantly; about life. College is so different than University. I wouldn't be where I am right now without my college. I was able to do my co-op work term placement here at Disney World, and I will forever be grateful that I went to Red River College for Hospitality and completed my co-op work term at Disney. Those two accomplishments have been the most two important decisions I have made in my entire life. They changed me and helped me to grow up. Both experiences have had a major impact on my life.

I have learnt a great deal from Disney World and I am so thankful for being in the field that I am in. My passion for travelling, food, people, business, etc. has turned into a career where I keep learning more and more about the world. I am so proud to say I graduated from Red River. I FINALLY did it!
