Issa's success

By Maritza Diaz | Project Leader


Issa studied Table & Bar at the Technical and Entrepreneurship School of Baru. She already finished both, the theorical and practical phase of her career. Now, she is working at a renowned hotel located near her community. We contacted Issa to congratulate her and to ask her about her experience. This is what she told us:

“I am picking up the fruits of so many early mornings in which, while everyone were still sleeping, I had to leave an hour early from Baru, to be on time for the Table and Bar classes in Santa Ana. Those were difficult days, especially during the rainy season, in which I left my house dry, but I arrived at school soaked, because of the rain on the way there.

I can’t still believe what I'm experiencing! Sometimes I feel like it is not real. I am working in the Table and Bar area, in a 5-star hotel that is highly recognized nationally and internationally. It is nice to work here. There is a lot of camaraderie among the employees, and I learn something new every day. When I was studying, I always felt like I had still too many thinks to learn, such as names, recipes, and ingredients. Here, I have realized that I am just beginning the process.

I am very happy because know, I can take care of my household expenses and I financially help my family. It all has been worth it! I would do it again as many times as necessary. May God allow me to continue growing and making the most of every opportunity.”
