During that year, I was so exciting and looking forward to taking classes in my major which is Hospitality Business, due to that I have so much passion about this field. I will try to introduce my major and tell some of my experiences I learned in my studies.

So now I already start my level 1 job which is as a waitress in a restaurant taking orders and servicing customers.
