Hospitality Management

Bio

Hi, my name is Kiara Rodriguez.
Welcome to my portfolio. I am a student currently enrolled in the Hospitality Management program at The New York City College of Technology.
I began to have interest in this field when I did a Pastry program at The Institute of Culinary Education. Where I earned my certificate as a Pastry Chef. This taught me the basics of what and how the Chef world is all about. When I graduated I had to do an Internship which taught me so much on how the bakery business works which is not easy but it is very exciting for someone who loves to bake like me. My goals are to get my degree in Hospitality Management and open up my own event planning and catering company established in Dominican Republic my native country. I have not worked in this industry yet, just on my Internship which was at Soutine Bakery. I have had experience in prior jobs with customer service tasks and the abilities to deliver customer satisfaction at all times. I like making people happy and this industry this is what it’s all about. I am a very hard worker and perfectionist. I like to succeed in life and if that means working hard for it I will.
Thank you,
Welcome

Templates for understanding and treating chronic illness including social support, referral and interventions for optimal physical and mental health are discussed. The interdisciplinary theme of this course will provide an overview of extant literature on theories of health psychology within the context of critical race theory, epidemiology, research methods, philosophy of science, biological anthropology, sociology, as well as applied health/medical fields for an enriched understanding of the biopsychosocial approach to health and illness.
