BSc, Tourism and Hospitality Management
The University of the West Indies Open Campus
I wish to express my sincerest gratitude to the Caribbean Tourism Organization Scholarship Foundation for making the Blue Group Media Scholarship possible this year, despite having been impacted by the global pandemic. Indeed, I was thrilled to learn of my selection and I remain deeply appreciative of your support.
As I reflect on my university journey, I consider myself living proof that “education opens our mind’s eyes to see the world with our own unique vision and perception” (D. Mridha, n.d.). My studies in Tourism & Hospitality Management thus far at the University of the West Indies, Open Campus, have fueled a greater desire to aid in national and regional efforts to revitalize,
re-strategize, and redirect the management of our tourism product.
Indeed, the support given by the CTO Scholarship Foundation is an investment in building capacity among the region’s human resources. It is also a testament to its greater goal of developing the region’s tourism and hospitality sector.
Let me once again extend a hearty thank you to the CTO and its many donors who continue to
invest in the human resource capacity of the region. The financial support received is instrumental in funding our collective dreams and helping them to become a reality.
