Huynh Thi Thien Huong – Alumni of Hospitality Course 14.
“I come from a fishing village in Ninh Thuan province. My father is a fisherman. He works very hard and long hours but his income is unstable. My mother stays at home, taking care of my grandparents and my brother. I wanted to have a job to support my father so I went to Saigon in 2016 and worked at a small restaurant. But I could not become a team leader due to a lack of skills. My friend introduced me to the Saigonchildren hospitality course. I could study in the morning and work at night. I was taught not only English but also other soft skills such as: communication skills and, professional working attitude. Currently, I am working at Citadel Saigon – a well-known Vietnamese restaurant where I meet a lot of foreign customers. I can make more money to support my family now. My goal is to become a team captain and later I can work on a voyage to go around the world.”
