Kimberly Minott- 2019 Graduate

  May 4, 2019

The Portland Arts Vocational Education Centre has left a great big impact in my life creating a positive aura in both personal and work aspect of my life. The role plays I had to participate in whenever I was at class helped to build my confidence yet giving me a better understanding of how guest or customers are to be treated. Having trips and doing internship at various hotels and villas etc gave me hands on experience of the working world and opened my eyes to the different areas in the hospitality field and how much guest or customers look forward to a warm welcoming customer service. This experience motivated me whenever I received tips or compliments from guest or even a small advice.

My confidence went sky high once I started to attend PAVE. I am no longer that shy timid girl with low self esteem but, now a woman that believes in her self and is much braver to communicate with persons. Friends have now become like family members, teachers and invited guests are now role modelers. I am now stronger, wiser, self motivated, confident, responsible and even more qualified as it looks so good on my resume to show how much I have achieved from attending PAVE. The opportunity that PAVE have given me, i have to be so thankful for because through all that experience I am now a PAVE coach leaving me to believe that anyone can become leader as long as they put their mind towards it.
