“When you hit rock bottom, the only place you can go is up!” Ahyani – ROLE Models trainee as a therapist at Thermes Marins Bali Spa”
Where are you from? Situbondo, East Java.
What do you think about this R.O.L.E program and how did you get the opportunity?
I know R.O.L.E from a friend. I am a single mother, I used to work in a small warung, trying to make ends meet for my 10-year-old-son. I only graduated from elementary school so it is a bit hard for me to even imagine I can make a better living. But after I found R.O.L.E, trained with F&B skills, English, gardening and cooking at their training center in Nusa Dua, and getting this training opportunity at AYANA, I am confident I will do better for myself and my son.
What gets you excited about being a R.O.L.E student? And what makes you nervous?
I love the trainers at R.O.L.E . They care about the development of each student. And I love being part of a hotel that is as great as AYANA. Even though AYANA’s guests have high expectations and that makes me nervous, the hotel trainers are incredibly supportive and patient of me and the rest of my friends.
Has a career in the hotel industry always been your passion? If so, in which area specifically?
Yes. I specifically love being in the Spa department.
What is your message to friends?
If you think you are at your lowest, cry for help. Do not keep it for yourself because it will drain you and bring you to even a lower level. R.O.LE is a form of help that I am getting.
What do you want to achieve?
Working here at AYANA, and making a better future for my son.
