Hello there, my name is Gabriela Mota and I am currently a student Hospitality Management student at New York City College of Technology. Im in pursuit of a career in the food industry working as either a chef or pastry chef. During my sophomore year of college, I was accepted to be a part of the Walt Disney College program which gives students the opportunity to earn college credit while working full time with the company. This experience has not only shaped me professionally in terms of my work ethic and my view on hospitality management, but my overall persona. Through my time in the program I have learned how to power through long hours, manage guest inconveniences, and how to go above and beyond guest expectations. I have learned that turning around a guest experience is more magical than anything else in the world.
