Amboseli Institute of Hospitality & Technology
In less than a week, the semester ends and I will finish the Artisan Course. It also means that exams are getting closer and therefore I spend a lot of time on studying, but I have a good feeling about school.Read more
Our teachers focus on preparing us the best way possible for the test and we work with assignments similar to the ones that might come in our exams. I am determined on getting a good result as this semester’s exams will determine if I will proceed with my certificate course or not.
My fellow students and I have formed study groups in which we revise together. This way, we will be mentally prepared when the exam comes. Another great tool for expanding my knowledge and preparing for the exam is my new phone. By using it to connect to the internet, I am able to find and learn new recipes which is great since I am able to extend my knowledge beyond what I am taught in school.
It feels like this semester was very short since we had to attend many practical lessons before we are going for three months long holidays. Moreover, we had to attach ourselves to some hotels or even bakeries for experience.
I am still participating in psychosocial support group and play handball with my friends near the school. We are quite focused on staying fit and prepared so we also engage in other physical activities. Sometimes, I walk back and forth to school as part of my work out routine. Together with my friends, I also still make beads and mats from time to time, but as I spend many hours on studying and attending classes, I do not have a lot of time to be creative.
Overall, I would say that I am doing great. I am gaining much valuable experience in the outside world through the people I meet daily. I am very focused on avoiding bad company as I have seen some of my schoolmates getting involved with people who use drugs and show bad behavior and from my experience, these mates end up getting lost. I want a successful life after completing the course and this involves staying away from such bad company.
