My name is Tequilla Jennings. I am a student at Lake Michigan College completing an associate’s degree in hospitality management and planning on transferring to a four year college or university. My educational aspirations consist of acquiring a master’s degree in hospitality management. On the other hand, my career vision is to become a General Manager for a reputable hotel. My long-term goal is to own a bed and breakfast. With my seven years of experience and expertise in a variety of guest service skills, I feel that I would be a great candidate for the scholarship essay. I am guest service oriented and have the ability to work well with others. I have compassion and a drive to make sure that people are satisfied with the service they are receiving. I am currently a guest service representative at the Courtyard Marriott in Benton Harbor, Michigan. I go above and beyond my daily requirements just to ensure that our guest experience their best stay at our hotel.
Previously, I worked for Whirlpool Corporation serving thousands of their customers and their needs which lead me to where I am today in the hospitality industry. Out of seven siblings, I will be the first to complete and obtain a college degree. However, it is hard to keep up financially. I am a single mother with two daughters working a part-time job. I am working hard and trying to set a good example for my daughters in hopes that they will have a drive for success also. Getting chosen for this scholarship will contribute to the overall success for my career path. Thank you for taking the time out to read and review my essay. I look forward to hearing from you soon.. Sincerely,
