Khwela Academy has three recent graduates eager to work in tourism.

INTRODUCING PHUMEZILE

My name is Mnikina Phumezile. I have recently completed the Khwela Youth Tourism Stars program. This program consisted of 2 months online hospitality theory, a 3 week road trip through South Africa and Swaziland, and an intensive 6 month internship at Carnival Court Backpackers and Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel. The first week I was placed in the housekeeping department so that I could understand the establishment better. After that I worked at the reception, handled reservations, and was a bartender. I am now actively looking for a job in any of the mentioned positions.
