#WhyIChoseSHA: I’ve grown up in the industry. My grandfather immigrated here to the US from India and saved money from his hourly jobs to purchase his own independent motel, which is still up and running today. I’m beyond thankful for all the hard work he’s put in, and I hope to be able to build upon the foundation he’s laid down for my family.
– Marut Raval, SHA’20
#WhyIChoseSHA: To get the opportunity to intern at one of the best hotels in the world, The Taj in Mumbai!
–Emma Jacobson, SHA’22
#WhyIChoseSHA: I chose SHA because of the teacher and students that I met during my initial tours and those individuals care for making me feel welcome. Hospitality is about people and SHA makes it evident that everything the school does is to further benefit people… I also always loved to cook!
