“To me, being a Hotelie for Life is purely about gratitude. I’m grateful to have been welcomed into the club many moons ago. I’m grateful for the experiences I had while on campus, and how they helped to shape me both as an individual and as a professional.
I’m grateful to have a network of colleagues, friends, professors and staff upon whom I know I can always rely, and for that moment of instant connection that’s shared when I meet a fellow Hotelie somewhere around the globe for the very first time. And just like my hometown, I’m grateful to always have a place that welcomes me back with open arms, that provides me with resources whenever I need, and makes me feel like a family member returning home once again.”
