Hello, my name is Julia. I am 18 years old and I am currently working towards my Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management. I don’t have any working experience in a hotel, but I am excited to learn about what it is like to manage one. My goal is to do well in the hotel management industry because I feel like the hospitality that you receive when traveling helps make your experience all the better. As someone who likes to travel, I find the mood and atmosphere of the hotel I stay at help set the mood of the trip that I want to create. When guests leave the hotel, I want them to leave with a smile. This is why I want to focus more on hotel management industry.
Currently, I am one of the Division Heads at the Liberty City Anime Convention, a non-profit event that supports anime, manga, and video games, as well as traditional and modern Japanese culture. Sine 2015, conventions have been a huge success with unprecedented turnouts. Now, in 2017, after years of growing events, we are able to book the Times Square Marriott Marquis. My responsibilities include all things logistical, meaning I oversee equipment purchasing and storage, guest booking, staffing, marketing, obtaining sponsors, as well as run our social media accounts.
In addition to the annual event management I am a Program Support Clerk for a non-profit adoption and foster care agency in Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island. This is a stressful and meticulous job that results in the safety and happiness of a child.
I love to please people, and I have a nose for what people like and dislike. I work hard and I want my guest to benefit from my labor.
My goal, once I graduate with my BTech Degree in Hospitality Management, is to go global and plan international events in the Hotel and Resorts industry.
