Amboseli Institute of Hospitality & Technology
I am doing well. This semester is almost done. I resume for my next semester classes starting from Monday 14 October 2019 after my end of semester exams.
I reported back to school late this semester due to unavoidable circumstances, so I missed some of the classes. But all in all, I managed and tried my best to catch up for what I lost.
We are provided with a lot of assignments and research. I have been learning new recipes every day and working on them since we are provided with a lot of theory and practicals at school. We are therefore allowed to research on new recipes. It feels great to be in school of hospitality because it is what I have always wanted in life. I love cooking with passion and being in a hospitality environment. I found a great opportunity to explore different fields in hospitality such as tourism, housekeeping, front office and many more. I also have friends who study other courses that are different from mine, and I see them fairing on well like me so that means that I chose the course that I wanted in life.
I am also learning foreign languages like German, French etc. and I am progressing well. l am getting familiar with the languages provided in school. I also want to take this opportunity to thank PDAid Foundation in partnership with Kilimanjaro Initiative for making this happen.
I have been participating in handball games since I was in high school, and it is now one of my favorite games. I have not managed to visit my PSS group since I am very busy with my classes. Whenever I am free, I visit the children’s homes near our school where we volunteer and feed the young kids. We also make their hair and play with them.
In general, this month has been great. As time goes by, I am realizing that am learning a lot of things. My mind is also expanding since I am around different people with different backgrounds. Life in college is very hard and sometimes if you do not focus you might lose. I keep telling myself that I come from a poor background, and that I will not allow peer pressure to destroy my future. Sometimes, I do not mingle with people who come from rich backgrounds because they can somehow discourage you. I do not let people know more about me – some may share my story or even take advantage of me.
Most of my classmates have dropped school due to peer pressure. Some have started abusing drugs and most of them are pregnant. From this, I have learned that college life can really destroy your future if you engage in bad company. Thanks to my mentor for giving me guidance and counseling.
