As long as you do not settle, you will get yourself to the top.” YUNI MARIYANI – ROLE Models trainee as a waiter at Padi restaurant

Where are you from? Gilimanuk, Bali.

What do you think about this R.O.L.E program and how did you get the opportunity?
I heard about R.O.L.E from my neighbor. It gives me education about basic F&B?skills, basic working skills, English, gardening and cooking whilst at the same time giving me an income.

What gets you excited about being a R.O.L.E student? And what makes you nervous?
The chance to practice English in everyday life is the thing I enjoy best about R.O.L.E . Not to forget, that it brings me to AYANA. A resort with a name so grand that I almost could not believe it is happening to me, this opportunity! On another note, I am nervous about being trained by the
professionals at AYANA. But their kind support is really comforting and inspiring.

Has a career in the hotel industry always been your passion? If so, in which area specifically?
Yes. Always. It is always been about Food and Beverage. I love to treat people special; I love to know habits and manners or service expectations of guests from different countries.

What is your message to friends?
Do not be shy if you have to start something from the lowest level. I am not ashamed if I have to do all the dirty and hard jobs to get to where I want to be, as long as I can learn something and never settle for second best.

What do you want to achieve?
I dream of being a restaurant manager.
