I am Jatin Sachdeva from India. I started with certificate course here at HTMi in August 2010. Later in January 2012, I was selected for the Management Training Programme. This programme helped in developing my skills in all the different departments like Kitchen, Service, Front office, Housekeeping, Bar and Manager on Duty. The Programme was challenging most of the times; however, this helped me in getting prepared for the real world. Last semester, I have successfully completed my BSc (Hons) Degree in International Hotel and Tourism Management. Having an exceptional study atmosphere in HTMi, along with all the latest technology made the study and also social life enjoyable. Currently, I am enrolled in Advanced Diploma and Postgraduate Diploma in European Baking and Pastry Arts. I am exceptionally glad to be one of the students at HTMi.

Studying here at HTMi is just fantastic. I have learnt countless things that I could never learn anywhere else. HTMi helped me in changing my personality according to the hospitality standards. If I look back at myself compared to now, I am a completely changed person and I would like to thank the whole HTMi family for this.

HTMi has tought me many beneficial lessons. Not only from an academic aspect but also a social one. Dealing with people, leadership, communication and marketing skills, all of which I have learnt from different participation in the many extra curriculum activities held at HTMi. Furthermore, having been Vice President of the student representative committee last semester to being the current President has given me an exceptional opportunity to showcase my leadership skills in enhancing the students’ life here in HTMi.

HTMi being a place filled with different cultures has helped me in enhancing the knowledge about the beliefs and understanding of every culture respectively. This has broaden up my way of thinking and even will help me in future endeavours especially in my career path.

The amount of words given to me to express my gratitude towards HTMi is not enough therefore, I would like to end with a quote by Robert Louis Stevenson ” Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seed you plant”
