High School - Social science

This program is a so called Supplemental Instruction (SI), an academic support model that uses peer-assisted study sessions outside of class.

Waitress

The high expectation of the quality of service was well suited for my good work ethic, and my ability to handle stress and multitasking. I found it awarding when the expectations from the guests was fulfilled, and even more when the food and the service was well over their expectations. This improved my communication and social skills.

Waitress

My friend and I decided to go travel after high school, so after a moth skiing in Banff in Canada we ended up on a small island in the Caribbean. Bequia is only 18 km2 big and is a real paradise. We started working for a Swedish couple that owns two restaurants on the island. This was an incredible opportunity, and after half a year there I was much more secure in my self, had learned so much from working in a different culture and I had improved my English a lot.
