I have a reasonable academic experience, which I consider to be helpful in studying tourism, hospitality, and recreation management. From 09/2005 to 08/2009, I studied at Shenyang University in China. The knowledge I acquired there was very helpful for my profession. After I finished studying at Shenyang University, I fully realized that working in tourism management sector is my true vocation. My dream was to work in a large international tourism, recreation, or hospitality company. However, I considered Chinese education not sufficient for good experience and job in an international company. Therefore, I decided to go to the USA and continue my study in this country. I consider American education much better and more helpful in modern working conditions than Chinese one.

However, my knowledge of English was not perfect. Therefore, I went to the USA and studied at IEP (international student education program) on Intensive English Program from 08/2010 to 09/2012. At the beginning of the MPA course, I was forced to leave California State University of Northridge because of financial issues: tuition was too expensive for me. Nevertheless, I did not want to give up my education, so I decided not to return to China, but to continue my education in the USA. Therefore, I transferred to Pacific International College in Los Angeles and studied there from 09/2012 to 08/2014. After graduating from this college, I continued my study at East Los Angeles College, and I am studying there now.

I consider this working experience useful for the future tourism or hospitality manager career, because I learned how to communicate and work with clients, how to plan, and how to work with inventory.

All those skills can be useful in tourist and hospitality management sphere. During my study in the USA, I worked as an intern in Lucky&Buddy Tour, Rosemead, CA. I worked there from 03/2013 to 09/2014. I was an office assistant.

In addition to academic and working experience that is useful for hospitality sphere management, I have several hobbies that I consider helpful for my future study and career, too. I am a highly socialized person, due to the fact that I have many friends and colleagues, with whom I communicate regularly. During my work, different managers praised me for good communication skills that I used to communicate with partners and clients. Apart from that, I like outdoor activities. Frankly speaking, I do not like to sit at home at all. My favorite activities include playing tennis, bicycling, and swimming.


I like backpacking trips very much, and I go on such trips with my friends regularly. Moreover, I like travelling, especially to national parks. I have already visited Death Valley, Joshua Tree Park, King Canyon, Yosemite, Antelope Canyon and some other parks. I think that my hobbies are useful for a person who wants to study Tourism, Hospitality, and Recreation Management and work in this sphere because I know what activities to offer for my clients.
