Old Collegian Jasmine Lanauze-King

Jasmine Lanauze-King says practical real-world experience is one of the highlights of her studies towards a Diploma in Hospitality Management at Queenstown Resort College. “I’m currently on a nine month internship as a Chef du Rang at Hippopotamus, a fine dining restaurant at the Museum Hotel in Wellington. It is a hands on job, which includes waitressing, serving high teas, and even carving meat and making crepes in front of the diners.”

One day Jasmine would like to run her own restaurant and bar, so she is finding the business aspects of the course extremely valuable. “I enjoy learning how everything is run and how it all fits together to create a successful business.”

She says the Travel and Tourism course at St Andrew’s gave her a good grounding, particularly when it came to working with other cultures, and understanding her own strengths and weaknesses. “I’m 100 per cent happy I decided to study at Queenstown Resort College. I’m learning a lot, and being set up for success with real work experience. Tourism related careers are exciting and you learn something new every day.”
