From Jamaica to Klessheim – meet some of our international students
The leading European College of Hospitality Management in Klessheim has a worldwide reputation for developing experts for the international hospitality industry. After this two-year program our students have an incomparable variety of attractive options. Regina is one of the international students who attends the Klessheim College. She is 18 years old and comes to Klessheim all the way from Jamaica, even though she is originally from Mexico.
The blog editors have asked Regina to tell something about her family and her origins and what she likes most in Klessheim:
“As an international student at the Tourism School in Klessheim, I have the opportunity to immerse myself in a new culture and gain valuable insights into the tourism industry. In this blog post, I want to share my experiences and reflections on studying at Klessheim, from the challenges of adapting to a different educational system and living abroad, to the joys of discovering new perspectives and making lasting connections with classmates from around the world.
My father is Mexican and my mother is from the Basque Country, Spain. I have 4 siblings and we were all born in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. Ever since I was a little girl I would hear my father talk about Klessheim as some of the best years of his life and I knew, one day, I would be living the same experience.
After graduating from Klessheim, my dad continued in the hospitality industry, thanks to that we moved a lot while I was growing up, living all over the Caribbean in Jamaica, Dominican Republic and the Bahamas… This opened up my mind and helped me realize that I really wanted to study hospitality.
My father is currently the General Manager of the Hedonism hotel in Negril, Jamaica, living the island life.
I will finish my first year of College in May, and it has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. I see myself continuing in this industry, hoping to become successful, knowing I will love what I do.“
