This scholarship award means so much to me, it allows me to keep focusing on my studies and not have to worry about money. Having received the Hospitality Foundation scholarship these past few semesters I have been able to progress and gain industry experience through various internships.

“I was awarded a scholarship from Hospitality Foundation. I am currently studying in the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at San Diego State University with an emphasis in restaurant management. Food is my greatest passion, whether it is eating, cooking, or learning about different cultures through their unique cuisines. I want to share this passion for gastronomy to the world by opening up my own restaurants in the future.

A recent aspiration is to work for a lodging corporation, such as Expedia or Airbnb in their marketing department. I look forward to graduating within the year, so I can be able to start interning or finding a position in the hospitality industry in the Bay Area. This scholarship opportunity through the Hospitality Foundation will support my financial needs in completing my hospitality degree.
