My name is Raina I am a recent graduate from the Hospitality and Tourism Management Program at Ryerson University. After working for world renowned hospitality companies such as Walt Disney World and Fairmont Luxury hotels, I have specialised the art of hospitality. While my experience working at Ryerson’s Research Institute for Hospitality and Tourism, has helped me develop a special interest in the studies of sustainable livelihoods, social innovation, sustainable tourism, female social entrepreneurship and sustainable indigenous tourism. Moving forward, I’m determined to gain in-depth knowledge on these topics and aim at integrating the concepts of sustainability and top-tier hospitality into my career. It goes without saying that the Sustainable Hospitality Challenge has brought me one step closer to pursuing my desired career path.
