When did you start working in the travel industry?
I started working at Fred. Olsen Travel in Bury St. Edmunds on August 28th 2018, after I found the apprenticeship via the .GOV website.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
My favourite thing about my job is getting to see customers face-to-face and seeing the delight on their face when you've helped them with something, whether it be a simple question such as needing help with a brochure, or helping to collect their tickets.
What is your favourite Holiday Destination?
My favourite holiday destination was Dominican Republic because the sea was gorgeous, the sand was amazing and of course the weather which got as high as 38 degrees Celsius.
Where would you like to visit next?
I would like to visit Italy. It's a place that I've always wanted to visit, the food is definitely a plus too!
What is your dream holiday destination?
Dream holiday destination is Maldives or somewhere along the Caribbean islands. It's the good weather and the views that are something to want to see.
What were your favourite childhood holidays?
My favourite childhood holidays were to Rhodes, Greece. We went there twice and it was a really nice resort and great for families as there is so much to do.
What are the first three things in your case?
Sun cream (because I burn easily), hairdryer in case the one at the resort isn't strong enough and all the clothes that I probably won't wear but take anyway.
