I am born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, and have lived at home for the majority of my live, so I cannot wait to move out and go explore the world, once I have finished my schooling. Having all of my grandparents born in the small country of Estonia, has given me many things in life, such as an Estonian passport and citizenship (which can let me travel, and work almost anywhere in Europe that is part of the European Union), the chance to say that I can speak, read and write a language that is used by only 1.5 million people, and a greater awareness of how big the world truly is.
Toronto has the biggest population of Estonians outside of Estonia itself and because of this there are many different Estonian organization that have participated in at one point or another in my life, from girl guides, summer camps, choirs, folk dancing, gymnastics, and language schools. I am grateful to life in a city like Toronto where I can proudly say that in my heart I am Estonian first and Canadian second.
George Brown College, has been my life four going on five years when I finish this year, I will have graduated with a Certificate in H101 Hospitality Services (with Honours), a Diploma in H110 Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure (with Honours) and an Degree in H302 a Bachelor of Applied Business, Hospitality Operations Management (hopefully again with Honours). In addition to this I am currently working on getting my French Proficiency Certificate from George Brown as well, and I should be receiving it at the same time as my degree. I also want to brush up on my Spanish, German and American Sign Language, all which I studied in high school, through George Brown as well.
When I leave George Brown I hope to go work at Walt Disney World down in Florida, in the Canadian Pavilion. I hope to make working at Walt Disney World my permanent job not just a one year contract, and hopefully I will be able to do so, with all my education in Hospitality and Languages from George Brown College.
