    Summary

    I am a recent graduate with a Master degree in Strategic Event and Tourism Management. I believe that my international background (4 years in the USA - 1 year in China - 6 months in Australia - 1 year in Mexico) is a great asset when working in the tourism industry. Moreover, with a specialisation in Tourism and 2 internships done in this industry, I have acquired the knowledge about the issues faced in this industry and learnt about the ongoing trends. I have always had a passion for travels, and this is reflected in my daily task. I am someone very hard-working and interested in continuous improvements. My internship in Mexico is coming to an end and I am at the moment looking for job opportunities in the Adventure Travel sector. This particular sector in the tourism industry attracts me the most because I find the experience more authentic and in harmony with the natural environment.
