All About Me!
Hey, my name is Rosemary Weima; let me tell you a little about myself. I am an Algonquin student enrolled in the program Hospitality and Tourism Management. After graduating I plan to continue my education by taking Event Management. I chose this career path because I love interacting with people. I was known all through high school for planning all my class parties, hang outs, trips and so on. I am organized and pay attention to detail. I also have an artistic side, which I love to use. You can see this side of me through my hobbies of scrap booking and card making. I am not too sporty or musical, but one way I do love to spend my time is being with friends and family, both being a major part of my life I really enjoy my time with them. To the left is a picture of my family that was taken this Christmas. In it are my 5 siblings, my mom and dad, two brother-in-laws, my boyfriend, and my two nephews and my niece. When talking about myself I have to include them. My family is the most important group of people in my life. They are who I am, where I’m from, and where I want to be. Their support and love is amazing, especially when I told them I decided to come to Algonquin.
I came to Algonquin after spending my first year at Redeemer University in Hamilton, Ontario. There I was taking the social work program. At that school I had so many great experiences, but at the end of the day it came down to the education which I did not love. Although I initially thought I would love being a social worker it turned out to be too intense of a program for me. Even though I feel I am an empathetic person, who is a good listener and someone who loves people, the career was too much for me personally. Therefore I thought I would put those characteristics of myself along with some others and choose to head toward the service industry. So far being at Algonquin has been a big change for me. The way school is set up and the business of the people is a lot get used to, but I am really enjoying the program so far. I also have met some new people which is really nice when starting off in a new environment. I am really looking forward to the rest of the semester and seeing how the program progresses.
Lastly I would just like to comment on my header picture and tell you a little bit about why I have that picture up there. This is a picture of me and my boyfriend in Time Square. It was taken on my grade 12 class trip to New York City. This was my second time going on a major trip and I had a wonderful time. I thought I would put it on my blog because it shows my experience traveling and experiencing the hospitality and tourism industry. We visited all the local tourist sites and stayed in a great hotel. It was an amazing trip and a great experience.
So this was just a little about me, why I am at Algonquin and my reason for the picture in my header. Hope you enjoy the rest of my posts to come!
