“The highlight of SP Tourism was the six-month internship at RWS as a front office agent and housekeeping room attendant. This positive experience helped to kick-start my full-time career at Hotel Michael as a Guest Relations Officer in 2014. SP Tourism has ignited my passion and nurtured me into a confident and outspoken professional with critical thinking skills which are essential to the hospitality industry.”
