My name is Lillian. This is my first post before leaving Toronto. After months of ups and downs in emotions, the date of departure is 5 days away. I am very excited to be going to the Borinquen Mountain Resort and Spa in Costa Rica. This is the first time leaving family and the familiar city I grew up in. I know I will be missing the comfort of my home and the familiar surroundings but this adventure is one I am willing to take for my own personal growth but as well as for my future in the Hospitality Industry.
Going away is hard for many people especially when you will be gone for 3 months. At the same time, taking an opportunity like this will allow me to see how much I will be able to grow personally and professionally. I am looking forward to the different culture, landscapes and the food, of course. I can’t wait for the adventure that has yet to come.
