Manage and Plan
In the hotel industry, the skills that one learns tend to mirror life skills. It is safe to say that being selected into the Ivy League Connection has taught me to expertly manage my schedule and choose my priorities. Ever since I have been an ILC student, I have been inundated with numerous meetings and other school-related events. Having a plateful of tasks to do at this age will only prepare me for college and of course, my future, when I am in the business world.
Though everyone I know celebrates Independence Day on the fourth, it is utterly different here in Ithaca. For Ithaca residents, tomorrow is the time where they plan to rejoice and to mark the occassion with fireworks.
