It's a pleasure to introduce one of the first ambassadors - Fleming Gracious. Talented, strong-minded, MBA student. During the period of being an ambassador, Fleming showed high skills of learning fast, adapting to challenging situations having high work ethics and simply being a good student! We are happy to have you back.
1. First of all, welcome back, Fleming, to our Ambassadors programme! I guess we can start from, how do you feel after a year being at the Ambassadors programme?
Thank you for having me back in the Ambassador program. I am thrilled with the new opportunities and new projects back at college.
The first year was exciting and productive, and it helped me grow a lot. I had the opportunity to get involved with many different projects, allowing me to develop my knowledge and skills. The ambassador program has made me typically confident, dynamic, and strong in communication and writing.
2. Why do you think it's important to be part of such programmes while studying?
The program offers students a chance to grow their leadership and communication skills inspiring other students to take a more active role in representing the college. It gives you the benefit of fostering relationships between prospective students and the institute and makes you feel good giving back to the college for putting their trust in you. Ambassadors add a layer of authenticity to your admission efforts. While staff members are seen as authority figures, students often see ambassadors as peers and equals. They may feel more comfortable asking them pointed questions about day-to-day campus experiences.
3. What key values would you say are important in your professional and personal growth?
The important key values that have helped me grow personally and professionally are
Strong work ethic and having a motivated mindset.
Taking responsibility in whatever I do and making sure it is done right.
Building a trustworthy environment and being reliable with a task.
Being adaptable and absorbent with the hunger for knowledge.
And lastly, being accountable for one's actions.
4. What are your career goals?
Having a career goal is like finding a purpose in your life and being proud of the journey you set in the present and accomplishing them in the future.
My goal is to create a business environment that brings pleasure and inspires the people working with me. Growing in a Hospitality environment and learning from the best, I would utilize that same knowledge and years of hard work and build something of my own.
5. Switzerland is a vibrant country, what do you like the most here? And why did You choose this country as Your study place?
Switzerland has been my go-to country for completing my studies for a long time. It has always attracted me with its natural charm and the culture it shares. The thing I love the most is the picturesque scenery everywhere you go; it just helps soothe my mind. Switzerland is also known for its world-renowned institutes for Hospitality and many other industries, and that's why I would choose Switzerland as my stepping stone towards my success.
6. What would you suggest to a student who wants to join the Ambassadors programme?
I would suggest to any student who wants to join the ambassador's program that it is life-changing.
You evolve as a person, and you get to explore and learn the skills you thought you never knew. It pulls you out of your comfort zone as you take on new responsibilities, and you get to make an example of yourself to others. If that's something you want to live by, the ambassador program is for you.
