Ruth Cancela, best known as Ruthy, is a Bronx New York native studying at NYCCT in the Hospitality Management field. She has worked in customer service for years and has become a people person. But her true love is in the culinary arts field, as well as travel and tourism. She enjoys cooking, baking and travel and hopes to one day combine the 3 into a career. Ruthy is a friendly student. Her name means one who is a friend. She hopes that college will introduce her to new friends and new experiences. She is coming into college with an open mind; ready to learn new things and define herself in the work industry. She loves music, movies, pop culture, food, technology and sports. She is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan and hopes to one day own a restaurant in Pittsburgh that is a hot spot for players and fans, alike. But she won’t stop there. Ruthy has big dreams of becoming somewhat of a celebrity in the hospitality field. Not for the fame and fortune but for the true love of people, food, culture, travel and fun.
