Where are you from? Flores

What do you think about this R.O.L.E program and how did you get the opportunity?
I used to sell cellular phone credit vouchers on the street. A lady who was selling porridge across my stall used to talk to me with her son. And she told me about R.O.L.E because she thought I was so sweet to her son. So I give it a shot and I am now learning English, basic working skills, gardening, and F&B service at the training center.

What gets you excited about being a R.O.L.E student? And what makes you nervous?
R.O.L.E is the answer to my prayers and I am blessed with all the education I am receiving. I have mixed feelings, I am excited and nervous being a trainee at a place like AYANA I just hope I can make my trainers proud and the guests happy.

What is your message to friends?
Try your best, and let God do the rest.

What do you want to achieve?
To be a Restaurant Manager, or better yet, own my own restaurant.
